“I am proud that Florida continues to lead the nation’s largest states in job growth, which is sending a message across the country that our state is the best place for businesses to grow and for families to find great jobs. Florida’s job growth has also outpaced the nation’s for nearly five and a half years, and we are leading the country in a variety of industries, proving that our efforts to diversify the economy are helping to create new opportunities every day.
With the newly
established $85 million Florida Job Growth Grant Fund, we will continue
to attract job creators to invest in Florida and ensure we remain a
leader in job creation for generations to come.”
~ Gov. Rick Scott
