“Florida’s freedom first policies have made Florida a great state for businesses and families to grow.

February’s economic data is concrete evidence that Florida is on the right path,” DeSantis said.

Finally, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), via Secretary Dane Eagle, pointed out that “Florida is lucky to have a Governor that works to give Floridians the economic freedoms they deserve and that supports economic growth.”
