In a report from the Tampa Bay Business Journal, Florida ranked behind Texas as the ‘best business environment state’.

Incentives, quick permitting and a lack of personal income tax for employees are key attractors.

Gov. Rick Scott and his team have focused efforts on bringing business to Florida over the last year. With this report, that’s seemingly good progress for the Florida economy.

As they say, a rising tide lifts all boats. The roadmap to success is built on small steps like this one – hopefully an uptick in business relocation trickles down with benefits for all here in Florida.
