Continued growth predicted for Florida's economy

On Friday, Florida's economists projected the economy would continue to "grow steadily" over the next three years, leading to a general revenue budget surplus in excess of $1 billion. This week, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity released an infographic, outlining Florida's economic growth by the numbers.

While these indicators are positive, final budget recommendations from the Governor and Legislature are forthcoming. FHCA will continue to monitor and share information on proposed budget allocations, in particular those impacting long term care providers, as we move into the 2014 legislative session.
