Tallahassee, Fla. This afternoon, Florida House Speaker Chris Sprowls announced his intent to work with Governor Ron DeSantis’ administration to reform Florida’s workforce system to foster economic mobility for those who need it most.

CareerSource Florida’s top priority is to ensure workforce programs that serve businesses and job seekers not only meet but exceed federal standards with integrity, transparency and accountability.

We look forward to working with our board member and state partner, Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Dane Eagle, to build upon the record of leadership, collaboration and achievement of our business-led state board as we advance the priorities of Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature.
