Statement from Dr. Bob McClure, president and CEO of The James Madison Institute: 

“Floridians spoke up in November and it was clear voters were concerned with the protection of economic opportunity. On this Inauguration Day, we congratulate Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, and Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam on being chosen to preserve the ideals Floridians value. The recent U.S. Census Bureau announcement that Florida officially surpassed New York to become the nation’s third most populous state proves we have the formula for success. “Live Free or Move” is a theme The James Madison Institute continues to promote and is a central part of Gov. Scott’s inaugural address. We are fortunate to have state leaders that understand the time is now to lock in the actions that anchor Florida as a lasting stronghold for economic freedom in America.”
