The following expression of support was released by the Florida Association of Counties over the weekend.
“The Florida Association of Counties supports SB 1606 & HB 341 which would increase opportunities to build the film industry in Florida. Film projects in Florida’s counties are not only exceptional in spotlighting the natural beauty of Florida but provide critical direct and indirect job growth for our local economies.”
The Association helps counties effectively serve and represent Floridians through advocacy, education and collaboration, and by bringing together the collective experience and knowledge of 377 county commissioners, supported by thousands of county professional staff.

Unified, Florida’s counties have a strong collective voice. COMPASS is very grateful to have the Association standing at our side, helping move our bills through this difficult legislative session. We look forward to working with them over the coming weeks at the Capitol.
