Welcome to It’s About Florida. A weekly discussion program tackling the key topics of interest to our state. I’m Lynn Hatter. Members of the Florida House of Representatives are pushing ahead with an effort to kill Governor Rick Scott’s favorite agencies, Enterprise Florida and Visit Florida. The two agencies have been underfire by House Speaker Richard Corcoran and his leadership team. They say the tourism and business recruitment arms aren’t doing a very good job and recruiting jobs. But Scott is fighting to keep them intact. Today on It’s About Florida, we take a closer look at one of those agencies, Visit Florida, and the tug of war over whether it should stay or go.
