Florida's unemployment drops; Gov. Scott responds

 

Governor Rick Scott responded to Florida's unemployment rate dropping to 8.6 percent in May 2012, down 2.3 percent since Governor Scott came into office and to its lowest point since December 2008:

"It is clear that the work we have done to lower the cost of doing business in our state by cutting taxes and reducing regulation is giving the private sector the confidence it needs to expand, grow and add jobs.  Florida's continued steady decline in unemployment shows that Florida is on the right track. I remain committed to growing private-sector jobs in our state by making Florida the No. 1 place for business so that every Floridian can have the opportunity for a job."
