In 2012, following the reconfiguration of Florida House districts, Cummings opted to run in the newly created 18th District. He did not face an opponent in the Republican primary or the general election, and was sworn in later that year. While in the Florida House of Representatives, Cummings sponsored legislation that would narrowly expand Medicare as provided for under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, providing "$2000 to low-income parents and those eligible for disability under Social Security."
