When modernizing outdated state regulations, having the Florida Legislature follow your recommendations is always a cause for celebration.
For the Florida Chamber of Commerce, a reason to cheer is the passage of HB 7175 – which builds on Florida’s current airport structures — representing a milestone for the state’s 15 commercial service airports, which move 2.5 million tons each year, as part the states $132‐billion dollars in two‐way trade to 225 trading partners worldwide.
Strategic airport investments passed by legislators are all there — in black and white — as part of the Chamber Foundation’s Trade and Logistics Study 2.0.
“Prioritized investments into Florida’s strategic intermodal systems will allow our state to better meet Florida’s long-term transportation and logistics needs,” Leticia Adams, Director of Infrastructure and Governance Policy for the Florida Chamber, said in an email to supporters.
“This bill encourages sustained investments in transportation, trade gateways and corridors, and the need for connectivity of seaports, airports and freight movement.”
It is not only a win for the Chamber, but also a win for the Florida economy — always a good reason to celebrate.
