Florida's economy depends on quality job creation. I believe that lower taxes encourage job creation and stimulate our economy. That is why during my past two years in office I have supported and helped to pass incentives to help businesses grow and hire workers, including providing tax relief to small businesses. During the 2012 Legislative Session I supported a combination of tax-relief measures and appropriations that provides $223 million in economic development incentives to our state. Since I was elected I have supported multiple bills in Tallahassee to reduce tax burdens on companies and individuals and I will continue to fight in Tallahassee to reduce taxes and do my part to help create jobs for our district.
