Speaker Steve Crisafulli joined Governor Rick Scott on his “Million, Billion Jobs Victory Tour” in Orlando at Orion Technology Services.
Since opening their first Florida location in November, Orion Technologies has already added thirteen new jobs and plans to create 30 jobs in Orlando.
During this stop, Governor Scott also announced that Florida businesses created 36,000 jobs in January.
Below is a transcript of Speaker Crisafulli’s remarks
Speaker Steve Crisafulli said, “Thank you Governor and thank you to the members of the Senate and House that are here today. We are talking about job creation and something that goes into job creation is making sure that this state has a good tool box to go out and be successful in that endeavor.
“This year, we put together a tax package between the House and Senate and the influence of the Governor and his focus on continuing to make sure that we have the tool box to be affective in this arena. We were able to put into place a permanent tax cut for manufacturers. There’s thousands of businesses in the state will have the opportunity to benefit from this, but not only for businesses, but Florida’s hard working families. We were able to reduce the RLE this year, the Required Local Effort. In taxes, that’s about a $400 million tax break for Florida’s families. We were also able to put out a tax break on the sales tax holiday as well as those for veterans organizations.
“So Governor, thank you for your influence. Obviously, we can’t do these things alone in the Legislature. It takes the work of all of us together. So Governor, without your help and your success in this arena, we wouldn’t be able to do that. So everyone needs to know that job creation comes in many different ways, and this year’s tax package is a big part of that. Obviously, we’ve been able to do in the past has led to 36,000 jobs and 5% unemployment rate. But we can all be certainly very proud. Governor thank you for your efforts and thank you for being in Orlando, and good luck with the rest of the tour.”
Governor Scott is visiting five Florida cities today on the “Million, Billion Jobs Victory Tour” to celebrate more than one million jobs created across the state in only five years and more than $1 billion in taxes cut over the last two years for Florida families.
