Florida’s 2023 regular legislative session concluded earlier this month on May 5th with the passage of several significant Florida Chamber priorities.
The Florida Chamber’s annual Business Agenda is created around the Six Pillars Framework and the 39 goals outlined in the Florida Chamber Foundation’s Florida 2030 Blueprint. Let’s take a look at the ten 2030 goals that saw direct progress during the 2023 legislative session.

- Greater than 60 percent of Floridians 25-64 have a high-value postsecondary certificate, degree, or training experience
- 100 percent of Florida 8th graders read & perform math at or above grade level
- 100 percent of Florida 3rd graders read at or above grade level
- Rural county share of Florida gross domestic product doubles
- Diverse, attainable housing to meet future demand
- Actuarially sound property insurance rates based on actual risk and competition
- #1 business tax climate in the nation
- Legal climate improves to top quartile in the nation
- Less than 10 percent of Florida children live in poverty and 100 percent have a pathway out
