“The independent, nonpartisan nonprofit aims to ‘bring a voice that has not been heard enough in the state of Florida,’ said Joseph Pennisi, executive director of the institute, which is in Lake Mary. ‘It takes will and wisdom to look at long-term investments and long-term payoffs in the state’s economy.’
While TaxWatch dubs itself the government watchdog and the James Madison Institute calls itself the state’s free-market think tank founded on principles of limited government and economic freedom, the Florida Policy Institute says it thinks in terms of ‘common sense’ policy, which could give Floridians widespread prosperity.
‘We all agree with the final result we want for Florida,’ Pennisi said of the state’s other think tanks, ‘but we disagree with the best means to get there.’”
Miller also makes note of FPI’s latest report on House Memorial 7033 (legislation that urges Congress to establish Medicaid block grants).
