Investing in Florida Seaports

Florida Senator Rick Scott visited JAXPORT earlier this week to highlight his Fighting for Florida budget agenda, which includes more a more than $140 million investment for Florida Ports.

Senator Scott also toured Port Tampa Bay, Port Canaveral, Port Panama City and PortMiami throughout the week to highlight his commitment to fighting for the continued success of Florida’s ports.

Investing in Florida’s infrastructure and seaports is about creating long-lasting, quality careers for Florida families and expanding Florida’s capability as a hub of commerce and international trade.

Capitalizing on Florida’s proximity to Latin America and the Caribbean is critical to maintaining the state’s role in the nation’s waterborne exports and imports.

Florida is home to 15 seaports and, as Governor, Senator Scott invested more than $1.4 billion over his term to modernize Florida’s seaports and trade infrastructure.

This includes state investments of more than $140 million to cover the federal share of projects like the deepening of Port Miami, JAXPORT Mile Point navigation and Port Canaveral West Turning Basin.
