We Need You in Tallahassee Monday

By: Carolyn Johnson

 

This is Your Last Chance to Take Action Before the Bills Head to the Full House for a Vote.

On Monday, March 6, 2017, at 3 p.m., the House Rules & Policy Committee will take up HB 7005, which eliminates economic development initiatives, such as Enterprise Florida and the Small Business Development Center, and cuts two dozen economic development programs. Additionally, a separate piece of legislation, HB 9, will be heard that makes sweeping policy changes to VISIT Florida. It is expected that VISIT Florida language will be removed from HB 7005 and will instead be addressed in HB 9.The Florida Chamber opposes these bills.

Here’s How You Can Help:

We need you to attend Monday’s House Rules & Policy Committee meeting to tell lawmakers why you support tourism marketing and economic development initiatives and the impact they have had on you, your business and your community.
