Florida has stood as freedom’s vanguard.

That was one message by Gov. Ron DeSantis in his recent State of the State address.

Florida’s popular governor noted that he has “protected the right of our citizens to earn a living, provided business with the ability to prosper and fought back against unconstitutional federal mandates.”

The governor’s common-sense policies are working.  

December 2021 economic data shows that the state outperformed the nation with 20 consecutive months of job growth and 14 consecutive months of labor force increases. Over the past year, Florida businesses have created jobs faster than the national job growth rate and Florida’s labor force has grown six times faster than the nation.

Good economic news that enhances the quality of life for Florida’s families.
