Lawmakers Take Steps to Lower the Cost of Doing Business in Florida

By: Florida Chamber of Commerce

On April 16, two Florida Chamber-backed targeted tax reform bills passed through the House and Senate— HB 7123 and SB 1112. Carolyn Johnson, Director of Business, Economic Development and Innovation Policy provides us with an update on the two tax packages and what they mean for Florida’s job creators.

HB 7123 will now move to the House floor, while SB 1112 has one more committee stop before moving to the floor.

Thank you to bill sponsors Representative Bryan Avila and Senator Joe Gruters for continuing to take the necessary steps to lower the cost of doing business.

We will keep you up-to-date as these bills move forward.
