Message from the CEO: Moving Business Forward

Good Morning Valued Chamber Member, I hope you enjoyed Passover and Easter weekend and had the opportunity to spend time with friends and loved ones.

The national mask mandate covering airplanes and other public transportation was lifted yesterday. The decision from the Federal Judge in Tampa can be viewed hereGovernor DeSantis announced that he would call for a special session of the legislature to address the rising property insurance rates in the State. The session will occur in May and focus mainly on reforming the property insurance market. The goal of the special session would be to bring stability and functionality to the market. Governor DeSantis has proposed a new Florida Congressional map that would create an additional 20 Republican seats and 8 Democratic seats based on the 2020 electoral data. Additionally, the map carves up the state’s 5th Congressional District and would dissolve the district in North Florida, which runs from Tallahassee to Jacksonville. State Legislators have deferred to the Governor to create new congressional boundaries since he previously vetoed one of their maps. Under the Fair Districts constitutional amendments Florida voters approved in 2010, Legislators are forbidden to draw districts that intentionally favor or disfavor incumbents or parties.
