Florida Seaports Applaud Governor Scott (USA)

The Florida Ports Council released the following statement regarding Governor Rick Scott’s signing the 2013-2014 Florida Families First Budget, which includes a historic $278 million to “continue our state’s commitment to develop and enhance our 15 seaports.”

Governor Scott’s budget invests in critical infrastructure that will benefit our state for years to come. On behalf of Florida ports, I applaud Governor Scott’s vision and commitment in moving our state’s maritime industry forward and creating jobs for Florida families,” said PortMiami Director Bill Johnson, who chairs the Florida Ports Council. “We are fortunate to have a Governor who understands that transportation infrastructure investments, such as roads and ports, will pay dividends in attracting new businesses and enable Florida to grow as a center for international trade and commerce.

“Florida ports contribute more than $96 billion each year to Florida’s economy, and the only way to continue to grow that economic contribution is to make smart, strategic investments in the freight infrastructure of our state,” said Doug Wheeler, president and CEO of the Florida Ports Council. “The 2013/14 budget signed today by Governor Scott will not only create jobs, but secure Florida’s future economy.”
