TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued a report from the Department of Financial Services entitled “Florida’s Economic Resilience,” which outlines how Florida’s economy outpaced the nation as a result of the anti-lockdown policies of Governor Ron DeSantis.

Following a detailed analysis by my office, it’s clear that the Governor is to be credited with creating a Florida economy that is more resilient. Even with a pandemic that ravaged global markets, Florida still had certain sectors that never took a hit. In fact, Florida’s economy grew at a 1.25% greater pace than the U.S. economy. This is no coincidence, and I’m proud to make this report available to the public so the rest of the nation can have a roadmap on how to properly manage their economy.”
