AFP Slams Bonuses for Enterprise Florida, Space Florida Staffers
Americans for Prosperity’s (AFP) Florida chapter came out swinging on Monday about reports that some Enterprise Florida and Space Florida staffers received bonuses.
“Taxpayers’ money should never be used to give lucrative bonuses to quasi-government entities like Enterprise Florida and Space Florida,” Chris Hudson, AFP’s director in Florida, said on Monday. “Our legislators should be ashamed of news that hard-working families and small business owners are subsidizing bonuses upwards of 50 percent of some executives’ base salaries. The governor and the Legislature should call on these organizations and remind them of the sacred trust Floridians place in government to use every dollar with the utmost integrity. Considering the less-than-stellar track record of organizations like Enterprise Florida, who continually fall short delivering on their promises, these groups should not be gaming the system to enrich their lives on the backs of taxpayers.”
