Fishkind: Could Florida's Budget Surplus Spur Job Growth?


As Florida anticipates an $846 million budget surplus for the 2014-2015 fiscal year, Governor Rick Scott has been traveling the state to drum up support for tax cuts. Scott says his $500 million tax cut package will promote job creation.

Economic analyst Hank Fishkind took a close look at the state budget numbers and Governor Scott’s plan.

He tells WMFE’s Nicole Creston that he agrees some of the tax and fee cuts will be good for job growth, but he thinks some strategic spending would help, too.
