This week Tax Watch released the Enterprise Zone report on Tuesday and we held a press conference on Wednesday at the Capitol to talk about the importance of reauthorizing the Zones. FEDC, Tax Watch, The League of Cities, Florida Retail Association and other participated to show we all want to see reauthorization happen. It will be a heavy lift and we will need everyone’s support. Please stay tuned!
On another note, I am pleased to announce that the Florida Economic Development Conference will be held May 17-19 at the Swann Hotel in Orlando. Registration will open next week. Additionally we will be accepting award applications so please think about what your organization has done on the marketing front and be ready to submit! This years’ conference will be packed with new and exciting topics and a new format. We look forward to seeing you there!
