The Governor’s Corner

Governor Rick ScottThanks to your hard work there are incredible opportunities for families to succeed in the Sunshine State. In a little over two years, we’ve worked to make government more effective and operate at a better value to taxpayers – and thanks to the hard work of Florida job creators – families are beginning to reap the rewards. Last session, we were able to provide pay raises for our hardworking teachers and make critical transportation investments in our communities.

Our pro growth policies are so effective that recently our State Revenue Estimating Conference announced that the general revenue now forecasted for 2014-2015 in Florida will be the highest ever. That’s why we’re working to cut $500 million in taxes and fees in the next budget, so families can keep more of their money. As we continue find ways to improve state government and benefit Florida families, we want to hear from you about how a reduction in taxes and fees would benefit your family.
