Florida is getting back to work! Last Friday the new unemployment numbers were announced, and they showed that our state has had 11 consecutive months of job growth. Now I am happy to report that unemployment is at a 3 year low!
These job growth trends are a result of our reducing regulation, easing the tax burden on small businesses and delivering two consecutive balanced state budgets without tax increases.
To ensure our job growth continues, I signed my 2012 Job Creation and Economic Growth Agenda into law. The passage of my jobs agenda is a tremendous victory for Florida’s families and businesses and will ensure private-sector jobs can continue to grow. My jobs package, combined with an additional $1 billion for K-12 education, will have an important impact on all Floridians, and I thank the Florida Legislature for recognizing the valuable contributions this legislation will make toward growing businesses and jobs in our state.
