Posted on April 18, 2019 by Staff reports

Governor Ron DeSantis today outlined his economic priorities while speaking at the Gulf Power Economic Symposium in Miramar Beach. The Symposium is focused on strengthening collaboration across Northwest Florida communities and fostering discussions and engagement in community and economic opportunities.


“We are taking bold steps to strengthen our economy and create new opportunities for all Floridians. Florida is the most business-friendly state in the nation, and that will not change,”  said DeSantis. “We are seeing a migration of people, jobs and wealth away from states that tax excessively, regulate unreasonably and spend profligately. They are going to states which tax lightly, regulate reasonably and spend conservatively and Florida will stay in the latter category as long as I’m Governor.”
