Florida Chamber of Commerce Announces First Round of 2024 Legislative Endorsements

Bipartisan list of 80 current and former legislators informed by performance on Chamber’s annual Legislative Report Card and vision for growing Florida

The Florida Chamber of Commerce continues to unite Florida’s business community to help make Florida more competitive, and today endorsed a bipartisan list of eighty current and former legislators running for election this year.

These legislators have a strong track record of securing Florida’s future by regularly promoting free enterprise and job creation. These endorsements are based, in large part, on Legislator’s actual grades earned on The Florida Chamber of Commerce Legislative Report Card.
