State Sen. Dana Young of Tampa and state Rep. Chris Sprowls of Palm Harbor have been named to GOPAC‘s 2017 Legislative Leaders Advisory Board.

“With Republican dominance at the federal and state levels of government, we must deliver solutions to Americans’ top concerns for economic and personal security,” GOPAC Chairman David Avella said in a statement Monday.

“Our Legislative Leaders Advisory Board members are integral to accomplishing this by sharing their ideas and trading best practices with elected leaders throughout the country,” he said. “Further, our Advisory Board is instrumental in our success at building a healthy roster of prepared leaders ready to lead in their state legislatures and/or run for higher office.”

Young, elected to the Senate this year, was most recently House Republican Leader. She chairs the Senate’s Health Policy committee. Sprowls, in the House since 2014, now chairs its Judiciary committee. Young and Sprowls, both lawyers, will serve a one-year term.
