Florida TaxWatch Economic Commentary

Florida's fiscal strength ranked 5th best nationally

| 12/1/2015

Conclusion

Florida’s fiscal standing grants the state the advantage of financial freedom moving forward. Due to the fact that the state does not carry large amounts of debt, Florida lawmakers can continue to invest in the state, and in new and emerging sectors that can make the state a national leader in areas like manufacturing, allowing Florida to financially stay ahead of the curve. While legislators must always be on the lookout for potential problems, as it stands today, Florida’s fiscal health is relatively strong.
