Rep. Don Brown is Chamber's MVP



Crediting his "unwavering support and commitment to the business community’s legislative priorities," the Florida Chamber of Commerce on Thursday named Rep. Don Brown, R-DeFuniak Springs, its Most Valuable Legislator for 2006.

The Chamber singled out Brown's work on the joint and several liability issue, saying he fought trial lawyers attempts to weaken the repeal.
