Greetings!
In his latest column, Florida Chamber President and CEO Mark Wilson discusses Florida's assets and how they must be preserved in the exploration to meet our country's energy needs. If Congress fails to extend the moratorium on oil drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico beyond 2022, oil platforms could be located nine miles off our coastline, which may be a detriment to our tourism-based economy, as well as the military operations that rely on the Gulf range.

The Florida Chamber wants your help in shaping its 2020 Florida Business Agenda. Please take a few moments to answer these questions and ensure your concerns are heard in Tallahassee.
