Last week: Last week, Florida TaxWatch celebrated its 40th annual meeting at the Breakers. It was a fantastic event with speakers including former Senator LeMieux, former Governors Martinez and Graham, Congressman Mast and Governor Desantis. While the many accomplishments of Florida TaxWatch were highlighted, the focus on the meeting was the inextricable link between the environment, and resiliency, to Florida’s economy was the larger overall theme. Floridians wants, and deserve it all – jobs, the environment and a great place to live!
Looking ahead: For those in South Florida, it sometimes goes unnoticed that the last Legislative Committee Week wrapped up Friday. I don’t know about anyone else reading the SF#100, but there are dozens of bills impacting my business. From potentially eliminating my professional license, to changing the thresholds allowable for public agencies to hire professional services and a bill allowing a separate license for structural engineers, there are big changes possible for those that don’t get involved. I’m looking forward to an exciting session in the coming new year!
