Legislative Appreciation Luncheon

Formal remarks are offered by three state legislators – Altman, Adams and Plakon — on their view of the results of the recently adjourned 2010 state legislative session and the impact such results had on Central Florida related issues. Those issues include SunRail, funding for public education, aerospace economic incentives, bond ratings, unemployment tax, property insurance premiums and tax credits among others. Audience questions evoked responses centered on financial aid to local school districts, home owners’ property insurance, pension reform, Tax Payer Bill of Rights (TABOR) and state taxes on common area maintenance rates on leased property. Their 45-minute presentation begins with 25-minutes of remarks from the legislators and 20 minutes of answers to followup questions from the luncheon audience. Feature Length — 54:18
