Florida Stands with Israel


This week, I announced the Florida Treasury has invested an additional $50 million in Israel bonds, bringing Florida's total investment in Israel bonds to $250 million, the largest total ever held at one time by the Florida Treasury. With this investment, Florida aims to diversify their investment portfolio as part of a long-range investment strategy. These bonds have since proven to be of great value to our portfolio, generating about $9.4 million in interest, offering consistent and positive returns for the state. Florida shares a unique bond with Israel, serving as our strongest ally and our greatest advocate for peace in the Middle East. 

Also, just this week alone we were able return more than $6 million in unclaimed property back into the pockets of Florida families and businesses. Thank you to our Division of Unclaimed Property for their hard work ensuring these assets are properly maintained on behalf of consumers and for putting Floridians first. I am proud to highlight the great work this team has done to return every cent of unclaimed property back to its rightful owner. I am encouraging every Floridian to search now for unclaimed property for yourself, your friends, your loved ones, and even your businesses at It's your money, claim it today! 

Finally, I want to remind everyone that the 2024 Hurricane Season begins in just 10 weeks. I want to highlight the "Prepare Florida," a disaster preparedness initiative to give Florida the tools they need to prepare. The time is now to protect and prepare your home and businesses. Do not wait until a storm is approaching. Prepare now, Florida!
