Senator Manny Diaz is Ensuring Florida’s Students Get the Best Education

In the latest Florida Chamber Bottom Line, Senator Manny Diaz (SD 36), Chair of the Senate Committee on Education, discusses his proposed legislation on school choice, the importance of education to Florida’s competitiveness and the future of Florida’s workforce.

“The most important thing for businesses, as a constituency, is to speak to their legislators and have them understand how important these pieces are,” said Diaz. “I think it is important that we get businesses to get them [legislators] to understand what is happening in the real world and what’s affecting businesses. These changes are needed in order to create a talent pool.”
