FL Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera Visits Ocala Business Owners
Florida's new Lieutenant Governor made a stop in Ocala today to talk to local business owners and to campaign for Governor Rick Scott.
Carlos Lopez-Cantera spoke to Marion County business owners at the Republican Business Council luncheon about the Governor's objectives in the next legislative session.
Those objectives include cutting $500 million in taxes by rolling back the tag and title increases put in but past Florida Governor Charlie Crist.
Business owners at the luncheon gave Governor Scott and Lt. Governor Lopez-Cantera praise for their reduction of regulations.
"The Governor is laser focused on creating a climate in this state where businesses feel comfortable to either relocate or expand and add jobs or bring jobs from other places," said Florida Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera.
Along with the tax cuts, Scott says he also plans to increase spending for hiring more child protection workers and for the continuation of Everglades restoration.
Also, along with former state senator Nan Rich, former governor Charlie Crist has put his name in the hat as a Democrat to challenge Scott in November.
