CFO Jimmy Patronis: State Debt Reduction Another Positive Sign for Florida’s Economy

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement on Governor Rick Scott’s announcement that since December 2010 state debt has been paid down by more than $10 billion.
“This enormous debt reduction is another great sign of Florida’s strong financial health and I’m especially encouraged that our state has a AAA bond rating from all three rating agencies for the first time in history. This is a testament to prudent financial planning, including an emphasis on keeping taxes low and focusing on job creation statewide. I will do everything in my power to continue to ensure Florida is one of the top states in the country for economic growth and is rated number 1 for fiscal health.”
