TAKE ACTION: Don’t Phase Out VISIT FLORIDA
By: Florida Chamber of Commerce
|The news is not good. |
Budget conference committee members for the Florida House and Senate have agreed to fund VISIT FLORIDA only through October. That means, without additional legislative action, VISIT FLORIDA will sunset when funding runs out this fall.
This Florida Chamber-backed legislative priority needs your help.
CLICK HERE to urge lawmakers to fully fund VISIT FLORIDA and Florida’s economic development arm, Enterprise Florida.
Visitors to Florida contribute more than $12 billion in state and local tax revenue annually. More than 1.4 million jobs are tourism-related and tourism revenue is one of the reasons why Florida is able to remain a personal income tax free state.
Now is not the time to reduce Florida’s tourism marketing efforts. Reducing Florida’s investment level is akin to giving up market share – market share that another state will quickly take over.

Join with the Florida Chamber in taking action today…together, we can make a difference.
