As Missouri State Legislators prepare to debate the overturn of Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of a $700 million tax cut, Florida Governor Rick Scott sent letters to Missouri business leaders this week urging them to book a one-way ticket to Florida. Governor Scott is asking them to come to the Sunshine State to take advantage of Florida’s business-friendly environment. As part of the “One-way Campaign,” Governor Scott also sent letters to business owners from Massachusetts, Colorado, Minnesota, Illinois, California, Connecticut, New York and Maryland
Governor Scott said, “According to a ranking of business-friendly climate by the Tax Foundation, Missouri ranks 16th in the country while Florida is one of the top 5 performing states. And it’s unlikely to get better for Missouri, as we just saw Governor Nixon veto a $700 million tax cut for individuals and businesses. Bad news for Missouri.”
