“Jobs for Florida”
Historic Economic Development Package
Signed into Law by Governor Crist
The sweeping legislation improves Florida’s competitiveness in international trade, space and defense-related industries, the film and digital media industries, marine and boating, manufacturing, real estate, and the commercialization of products and research developed by Florida companies and universities. The bill also requires transparency in the use of economic development incentives and gives preferences to businesses that hire Floridians.
