Florida lawmakers back in Tallahassee

Florida lawmakers are back in Tallahassee this week, and they have more to discuss than the budget. On the agenda in 2016: up to $250 million to attract out-of-state businesses, a wide range of tax cuts that could eliminate all income taxes on manufacturers and retailers, medicinal marijuana for the terminally ill, and even year-round daylight savings.

Top issues for our clients include public information requirements placed on Citizens and private property insurers, the potential for Florida’s Education Commissioner to become elected rather than appointed, and new details as to how Amendment 1 dollars can or cannot be spent across the state.

Influence Communications clients appreciate our unique hands-on, collaborative approach to managing their brand message and position. We stay on top of what’s going on in public affairs to ensure our clients don’t miss opportunities for positive exposure and thought leadership.
