CFO Jimmy Patronis Statement on Florida’s Unemployment Rate

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.  – Today, Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis issued a statement on the news that Florida’s unemployment rate dropped from 13.7% in May to 10.4% in June.
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Today’s news that Florida’s unemployment rate dropped by over three percentage points is the kind of good news we need to hear as our state and nation continue dealing with this global pandemic. No doubt, the success of our state is tied to a good economy. Florida business owners and workers are how we fund our schools, our hospitals and provide for any other number of critical government services. It’s also how families put food on the table. Each and every day I’ll keep rooting for Florida businesses who are working their tails off to succeed and hopefully get back to normal.”
