Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park; legislative findings.—
It is the finding of the Legislature that:
Agriculture is an important industry to the State of Florida, producing over $6 billion per year while supporting over 230,000 jobs.
Equine and other agriculture-related industries will strengthen and benefit each other with the establishment of a statewide agriculture and horse facility.
A Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park will provide Florida with a unique tourist experience for visitors and residents, thus generating taxes and additional dollars for the state.
Promoting the Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park as a joint effort between the state and the private sector will allow this facility to utilize experts and generate revenue from many areas to ensure the success of this facility.
