Florida is rapidly becoming the only free state in the Union, thanks to Governor Ron DeSantis.
Governor Ron DeSantis appeared on Fox News this morning to highlight the economic success of Florida during the COVID crisis. As DeSantis notes because the state remained largely open the state did not need to touch its “Rainy Day Fund” to cover emergency expenses; and now the state is fully operational the revenues being generated are allowing the legislature to double the state emergency fund accounts. All of this despite Florida having no income tax.
Additionally, DeSantis highlighted the growth in the state that allows the legislature to provide $1,000 bonuses to first responders; and introduces a new election reform bill recently passed by the state legislature, which he signed live on television.
