Congressman Neal Dunn

Representing the 2nd District of Florida

Economy

Second District families know that we have a long way to go to get our economy back on track. As a small business owner, I know firsthand how unnecessary government regulation can harm job creators across Florida and the country. That’s why I will be working every day to create jobs and support our small businesses, so every hardworking American has the opportunity to succeed.

Key to this will be dialing back government overregulation and reforming our tax system so American workers can better compete in a global economy. It’s time to put the brakes on government borrowing and overspending, because the tax and spend policies of Washington are hurting families across the country. We have already passed the REINS Act, critical legislation that requires Congressional approval for major new regulations.

I am committed to being a strong voice for Florida agriculture and farmers and ranchers, and I am honored to have been appointed to the House agriculture committee.
