Governor Scott Warns Governor Perry:
Watch Your Back!

Florida Is Coming for That No. 1 Spot

Tallahassee, Fla.Governor Rick Scott warned Texas Governor Rick Perry not to get too comfortable as the No. 1 business friendly state.

While our state moved up three places from last year’s survey of CEOs, Florida is not satisfied with Chief Executive Magazine’s third-place ranking for job growth and business development. Governor Scott made it clear, “ Florida will not settle for third place.”

Governor Scott also thanked Governor Perry and Texas for giving Florida additional motivation to unseat them from their seven-year streak at the top of the CEO’s survey.
