Governor Rick Scott today (April 2, 2012) signed SB 1416/HB 7027 that will save Florida businesses $50 per employee an estimated $400 million savings, according to the Florida Chamber of Commerce. Record unemployment drew down the state's unemployment compensation trust fund, triggering what would have been an automatic tax increase on the state's job creators. The legislature's incoming presiding officers worked out a solution that saved businesses from extra costs at a time when the economy is just beginning to improve. The bill was signed in to law by Governor Scott at a Bay County Chamber member manufacturing facility, Entera, which employs over 150 individuals. Chamber Chairman of the Board, Al McCambry and President, Carol Roberts were in attendance.
