Manatee County Rep. Steube earns legislative victory

July 6, 2013 

Republican Rep. Greg Steube, whose sprawling district encompasses East Manatee and Sarasota, earned a victory when Gov. Rick Scott signed HB 85.

Steube's bill encourages public-private partnerships to boost economic development and job growth.

The new law includes a number of accountability measures to ensure private sector performance and safeguards public sector participation.

How important is this new law? The governor will hold a ceremonial bill signing in Miami later this month, according to Steube. Should this legislature measure up to the anticipated success, Steube may have earned a more important role in coming legislative sessions.
