TThe Advocacy Team at the Florida Retail Federation advocates for the 270,000 retail businesses in the Sunshine State.

We pursue legislative proposals and changes that benefit and strengthen Florida’s retail industry. In addition, we monitor legislative activity and testify for or against proposals that impact Florida retail businesses because we know a healthy retail marketplace creates jobs and drives the growth of many other industries, including manufacturing, distribution, transportation, shipping, real estate and construction.
