Florida lost 10,000 jobs as stimulus funding winds down
Florida has lost about 10,000 jobs as contracts and grants from the federal stimulus program dry up, according to a new report from the Collins Center for Public Policy.
"Some of the big education grants are winding down," said Don Winstead, a Collins Center consultant who was former Gov. Charlie Crist's stimulus czar. "I expect the job numbers to decline from here on out."
