FMMC’s current advocacy activities occurring at the state and national level include:
- Supporting Florida legislation fully exempting the purchase of manufacturing equipment (MME) from sales tax
- Backing proposed legislation to reduce Florida’s sales tax on commercial rent
- Working with national, regional, and industry advocacy groups in the fight to repeal the medical device excise tax
