“I am excited to visit IDI today to celebrate their recent success and the creation of 40 jobs over the past two years,” Scott said in a news release. “IDI is one of many small businesses growing in Florida and plans to add 200 new jobs over the next few years. We will keep working to cut $1 billion in taxes and create the new $250 million dedicated Florida Enterprise Fund this session so Florida can become first for jobs.”
