The Florida Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Senator Dennis Baxley has been named a Florida Chamber 2018 Distinguished Advocate for his commitment to championing pro-jobs, pro-business legislation.

“The Florida Chamber thanks Senator Dennis Baxely for his commitment to lowering the cost of doing business for Floridians,” said David Hart, Executive Vice President of the Florida Chamber of Commerce. “Senator Baxley fought side-by-side with the Florida Chamber to champion legislation promoting transparency in the collective bargaining processes.”

The Florida Chamber’s Distinguished Advocate award recognizes lawmakers who fought tirelessly for the passage of pro-business legislation – no matter how difficult – and furthered the Florida Chamber’s goals of securing Florida’s future through job creation and economic development.

“It is important for our education professionals to have legitimacy in negotiations when represented in collective bargaining. When most of the work group are not members, how can this be legitimate representation? Thank you to the Florida Chamber of Commerce for recognizing this factor in the continuous improvement of academic excellence.” Senator Baxley said.
