Florida Chamber of Commerce Legislative Priorities

February 24th, 2010 by flanews

The Florida Chamber of Commerce is asking state lawmakers to protect businesses for tax hikes, lower property tax, and increase their focus on education. Members of the chamber were at the capitol today to celebrate free enterprise and announce their 2010 legislative agenda. Governor Charlie Crist addressed the chamber and says the business climate in Florida is improving.

Crime has continued to decline. Education happens to be up. Property taxes are down. Property insurance is lower. You are covered and we havent had a hurricane. Thank God for that one. Things arent so bad, said Crist.

Crist did concede that the state is facing challenges and says hell talk more about the struggles facing small business owners and employees during his State of the State address next Tuesday.
