TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida Gov. Rick Scott is signing a handful of bills that were part of his "jobs agenda" for this year.
Scott is expected on Wednesday to sign a measure that would reduce corporate income taxes. He is also expected to sign another bill that will scale back the size of an unemployment tax increase due this year from nearly 460,000 businesses.
The cut in corporate incomes taxes is included in a bill that has roughly $120 million worth of tax cuts including a doubling in corporate tax exemptions. That same bill also calls for a back to school sales tax holiday in August.
Scott will also sign a bill that gives him more control over regional workforce boards that control millions in money for job training and job placement services
