Orlando job summit to take conservative approach

TALLAHASSEE — A pair of future Republican legislative leaders announced plans Tuesday for a jobs summit that will focus on two conservative policy solutions: cutting government regulation and offering tax incentives to businesses.

Senate President-designate Mike Haridopolos and House Speaker-designate Dean Cannon said they'll be seeking ideas from all sectors — left and right, business and labor — as long as they fall mainly into those two categories.

The conference, Jan. 14-15 in Orlando, comes more than two years after Florida's economy dipped into a recession that has left the state with an 11.5 percent jobless rate and more than 1 million residents jobless.
