The Florida Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize Senator Joe Gruters as a 2019 Distinguished Advocate for his work during the 2019 Legislative Session.

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

“Senator Gruters carried half a dozen Florida Chamber-backed bills and policies on everything from targeted tax cuts and employer mandates preemptions, to long-term infrastructure investments and smart growth management, and the reauthorization of VISIT FLORIDA,” said Frank Walker, Vice President of Governmental Affairs for the Florida Chamber.

This award is designed to honor legislators who prioritize the priority business community’s legislative goals.

“As a business owner, I ran for office to make Florida the number one place to live, work and raise a family. I am honored to be recognized by the Florida Chamber of Commerce and can’t wait to advance more pro-business and pro-family legislation in the future,” Senator Joe Gruters said.

The Florida Chamber of Commerce thanks Senator Gruters for his work during the Legislative Session.
