Florida Chamber of Commerce Releases 2008 Priorities

February 7th, 2008 by flanews

The Florida Chamber of Commerce says people want more property tax cuts. Member of the chamber held a press conference Thursday to announce their 2008 legislative priorities. Commercial property insurance and smarter growth management were just a few of the goals. Chamber members say 6 out 10 voters have no clue about some of Florida’s laws. Many don’t know the laws allow some types of assessments on insurance premiums for homeowners and businesses. Florida’s Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Mark Wilson said Florida is in critical need of economic growth and more property tax relief.

“It’s not fair that the government has such a high standard when they value our properties. We believe that property owners should at least have a 50/50 chance. We have high hopes that that will be taken up by the legislature and dealt with in short order,” Wilson said.

In addition to property and tax issues the chamber’s agenda also includes important reforms such as constitutional amendment reform, insurance energy solutions and transportation.
