In response to Governor Scott's decision to veto Senate Bill 354, Congressman Joe Garcia today released the following statement:
"While I do not agree with the reasoning behind his decision, I believe that a veto was the right decision. This is simply a matter of fairness -- no single private company should receive preferential treatment. We must all put our fair share of taxes back into our local communities. It is my hope that the State Legislature will now let the courts resolve this matter." Garcia said.
