Where We Stand
Make Florida More Competitive and Create Economic Opportunity for Millions of Floridians
For the past 100 years, the Florida Chamber has stood up for what’s right for Florida in every corner — from the Florida Legislature to the Florida Cabinet, from state to federal agencies, from the court of law to the court of public opinion. When the battle is about what is best for Florida’s future, the Florida Chamber is on the front lines. At the Florida Chamber, we believe we can create economic opportunities and grow our economy. The Florida Chamber enters each Legislative Session by encouraging lawmakers to focus on making Florida’s business climate more competitive and lowering the cost of living for Florida’s families and small businesses. The Florida Chamber’s Competitiveness Agenda serves as a step-by-step legislative roadmap that focuses resources and expertise to advance jobs, competitiveness and economic opportunity for Floridians.
Florida’s Competitiveness Agenda builds on 122 pro-jobs bills passed and signed into law in the last six years that have propelled Florida with positive economic momentum. However, the Florida Chamber’s Competitiveness Agenda also recognizes economic and demographic shifts that, if not addressed through a long-term lens, could put Florida’s economic conditions in a fragile position. As always, the Florida Chamber’s 2017 Competitiveness Agenda will score dozens of bills on its priority agenda that will further build on Florida’s competitiveness, including:
- Keeping Florida’s Businesses Climate Competitive
- Closing Florida’s Talent Gap by Improving Educational Opportunities
- Preparing Florida’s Infrastructure for Smarter Growth
- Championing Florida’s Quality of Life
- Diversifying Florida’s Economy and Creating High-Wage Jobs
- Making Florida Government More Efficient
