Encourage Legislators to “Market Florida”

By: Carolyn Johnson

On Wednesday, April 1, the House and Senate will begin finalizing Florida’s budget. The Florida Chamber is leading the effort to encourage the Florida Legislature to invest a minimum of $20 million annually to market Florida’s business climate in other states. Florida currently spends $0 telling Florida’s success story to businesses in other states in an effort to increase job creation in the Sunshine State. California spends $50 million in this area and New York is in the middle of a $200 million ad campaign.

The initial proposals from both the House and Senate show an initial offering to fund 25 percent – or less in the House budget – of the recommended investment.
