Thanks to the efforts and outreach of our members,
Florida Chamber-backed SB 1046 unanimously passed out of Senate Commerce and Tourism. The bill, sponsored by Senate Nancy Detert (R - Venice), will help fuel jobs and economic growth, and establish a Division of Film and Entertainment under Enterprise Florida. This bill will also help maintain technical jobs in our state, continue showcasing our state through television and movies, and help make Florida more competitive with neighboring states, such as Georgia, which has a booming film industry. Thank you for your support in maintaining and creating high-wage jobs in Florida.
