Fort Myers, Fl. -- Six members of the Southwest Florida Legislative Delegation will be the guest speakers for a luncheon with regional business leaders on Wednesday, May 30th in Fort Myers.

The luncheon is hosted by Edison College and Florida Power and Light in partnership with The Chamber of Southwest Florida.

Steve Tirey, President of The Chamber of Southwest Florida stated today, "Property Tax and Insurance Reform are high priority issues for many of our members. There is still some skepticism among our members and the general public regarding the effectiveness of recent insurance reforms in the legislature. Additionally, business is keenly interested in the outcome of efforts to modify Florida's property tax structure."

Members of the delegation confirmed to attend include: Florida Senators David Aronberg and Burt Saunders. Florida House members Garrett Richter, Gary Aubuchon, Nick Thompson, and Trudi Williams have also confirmed participation. J. Keith Arnold, former Florida House Member will moderate the session.
