The 'Story' of the Florida Chamber
The Florida Chamber of Commerce at its annual meeting in Sandestin has installed its new president: Susan Story, CEO and president of Gulf Power in Pensacola. She replaces former Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings as chamber president for the coming year.
Story will steer the Chamber agenda at a time when she also holds a key position as a member of the Florida Taxation and Budget Reform Commission, which has the power to put tax reform proposals directly before voters in the 2008 general election. Story is chair of the TBRC's Finance and Taxation Committee, the group most closely involved in reviewing the state's tax base. The Chamber has long opposed repealing sales tax exemptions.
