We are making Florida first for jobs

| 9/22/2016

My goal every day is to make Florida first for jobs by cutting taxes and creating an environment where businesses can grow and add more jobs for our families. Since I became governor, Florida businesses have created more than a million jobs, and our private-sector job growth has consistently exceeded the nation’s.

Florida’s tremendous economic turnaround results from our efforts to diversify our economy and cut taxes 55 times to save Florida families and businesses
$5.5 billion, including $1 billion over the past two years.

When we cut taxes and make government more efficient, Florida families and companies prosper, jobs are created and we have the opportunity to invest in areas that are important to Florida families: education, our environment and keeping our communities safe.

Florida has a highly qualified and diverse workforce. We are preparing students to participate in Florida’s economic turnaround by investing record amounts in our K-12 public schools and higher education.

As Florida’s economy continues to prosper, I am committed to finding more ways to return money back to Florida families and businesses. Our goal is to make Florida first for jobs so our state is the best place for businesses to succeed and for families to find more opportunities.
