Tallahassee, FL – Today Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) is launching a direct mail campaign urging state Senators in Florida to follow the House’s lead and reject corporate welfare this session. The move is a nod to Enterprise Florida, a corporate welfare program that uses taxpayer dollars to pay out special interests.
“We don’t make this sacrifice on behalf of special interests,” the mailers read. “Corporate welfare doesn’t make us stronger…. Tell [your state Senator] it’s time to level the playing field.”
CVA mailer directed at constituents of state Senator Jeff Brandes.
The mailers ask Floridians to call the offices of their state Senators and urge them to end corporate welfare in Florida.
CVA Coalitions Director Diego Echeverri issued the following statement:
“Veterans fought and sacrificed to preserve liberty, not corporate welfare. Taking money from hard-working taxpayers and giving it to special interests does not make Florida more secure or free. We urge members of the Florida state Senate to follow the House’s lead, support ending Enterprise Florida and reject false narratives that this crony program somehow makes Florida stronger.”
The Florida state House recently voted to eliminate the program through H.B. 7005.
CVA has been outspoken on the need to eliminate Enterprise Florida, a program which puts the needs of special interests ahead of the needs of hardworking veterans in the Sunshine State.
