|Dear James,Our efforts to cut taxes, reduce red tape and provide more for education have earned our great state recognition from business leaders and publications across the country. Last week, we learned that 650 Chief Executives ranked Florida #2 in the nation for business!
Chief Executive Magazine attributed Florida’s high ranking to the combination of our state’s business tax and regulatory reforms that have contributed to the creation of of more than 140,000 private sector jobs and an unemployment drop of 2.1 percentage points last year.
Following a month when Florida enjoyed its largest monthly unemployment rate drop in 20 years, we’re clearly setting the standard for job growth. While we still have plenty of challenges ahead, more businesses are hiring Floridians throughout our state.
In addition to our leading business environment, we’ve added $1 billion to K-12 educational funding, all on a balanced budget that didn’t raise taxes.
Will you spread the word about Florida’s impressive ranking by:
