“Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) would like to take this opportunity to explicitly state that we were not responsible for the protestor at Senate Regulated Industries committee meeting today in the Capitol. We do not condone methods that belittle such respected entities such as the Florida Chamber of Commerce and Walt Disney World and are disappointed members of the media and others would speculate that we would use such tactics in our advocacy. We have an incredible level of respect for the process, the various interests involved and of course all the men and women who serve our State in the Florida Legislature.
We have been open about our message and believe the job and economic benefits destination resorts will bring to Florida is powerful enough to stand on its own.”
