Visit Pensacola Encourages Businesses and Citizens to Speak Out Against HB 7053

Tourism is vital to the wellbeing of Escambia County’s economy. Florida’s tourism market is under attack and Visit Pensacola needs your help to protect this important economic engine. Recently, the Florida House Regulatory Reform & Economic Development Subcommittee introduced and passed a far-reaching Committee Bill (HB7053) that has been labeled as the most significant attack on Florida’s tourism industry ever proposed. If passed, this bill will negatively impact tourism and tourism-related entities by stripping away both the state and local community’s ability to effectively promote its tourist destinations. We need your help to prevent this bill from becoming a law.
