For the Senate, you can find every Senator's email here. For the most part, their emails should be <last name>.<firstname>@flsenate.gov. I recommend that for any email you send to a Representative or Senator, you CC their legislative assistant. You can find LA names on the biography page of every Representative and Senator.
