2012 Job Creation and Economic Growth Agenda
Legislation Will Create Jobs and Reduce the Cost of Living for Floridians
This week, I signed my Job Creation and Economic Growth Agenda into law. With these new laws, Florida’s economy will be better positioned to grow, create jobs and get Floridians back to work. By eliminating burdensome rules and regulations, reforming our unemployment system to a reemployment system, providing tax relief to our job creators and holding accountable the workforce boards tasked with connecting Floridians to job opportunities, Florida will continue to see its unemployment rate drop, businesses will grow, and Florida will become the best state in the country to open, expand or move a business.
The passage of these important bills is a tremendous victory for Florida’s families and businesses and will ensure private-sector jobs can continue to grow. My jobs package, combined with an additional $1 billion for K-12 education, will have an important impact on all Floridians, and I thank the Florida Legislature for recognizing the valuable contributions this legislation will make toward growing businesses and jobs in our state.
