RIP: Florida Economy

January 26th, 2010 by flanews

Florida’s largest business lobby is making funeral arrangements for Florida’s economy.

Associated Industries of Florida says stricter water restrictions set to go into effect in October will kill business and hurt families. AWI claims the new regulations will cost households and average of 62 dollars more a month on their water bills. The funeral will be held one day before President Barack Obama’s Tampa Visit. Funeral organizer Barney Bishop hopes the message reaches the President.

“We want him to understand that while he’s talking about creating jobs, his own federal EPA and Carol Brown are right there in the White House Purposely screwing Florida’s Economy by imposing unscientific regulations as a result of the lawsuit where the EPA capitulated with the plaintiffs to take Florida down this path of increasing our water rates,” said Bishop.

The new regulations are meant to improve the water quality and cut down on toxins.
