Several states and nations are targeting the same high-wage industries
Florida is targeting. In order to continue to diversify our economy, the Bay
County Chamber will continue to support Enterprise Florida's (EFI) efforts to
attract competitive new projects within and to our state. Unfortunately, as the Florida Legislature works to create the state
budget, there has yet to be any movement on the Florida Enterprise Fund, which
remains at $0. If this program remains at $0, the state will not be able to sign or
attract new businesses using incentives next year.
Please reach out to Chairs Richard
Corcoran and Tom Lee to share your input to fund Enterprise
The Bay County Chamber supports:
= Incentivizing industries that create high-skill, high wage jobs to
diversify our economy;
= Encouraging industries to locate in Florida that produce high-skill, high-wage
= The investment of $250 million into the Enterprise Florida Fund.
