Rep. Davis donates 18 years of files to USF



Soon to be ex- U.S. Rep. Jim Davis, D-Tampa, announced today that he is donating to the University of South Florida his files documenting eighteen years of service in the Florida House of Representatives and United States House of Representatives.

The files, which include Davis’ work on issues ranging from offshore oil drilling to federal debt reduction, will be housed among other Florida politicians’ papers in the USF Tampa Library’s Special Collections Department.

“I have dedicated my career in public service to improving Florida’s public education system, so it is with great pride that I turn my congressional records over to the University of South Florida, one of our state’s finest public institutions of higher education,” Davis said.
