A Guide to Legal Reform Issues
By: Florida Chamber Foundation
To ensure Florida’s economy remains competitive we must address Florida’s broken legal climate. For Florida to remain a leader in U.S. job creation and ensure that dated and costly regulations become a thing of the past, we must continue to build an environment that invites businesses and investments worldwide, as well as retaining Florida’s already growing businesses.
Florida continues to fail in terms of legal climate — coming in at 46 of 50 in 2017. When lawsuit abuse occurs, Florida families and
businesses feel the impact through higher costs of living creating a $3,400 “tax” for families each year. Florida’s position as one of the bottom-five legal climates in the U.S. hurts our ability to remain competitive in the global marketplace.
