Music Recording Industry Task Force
In September of 2008, Governor Crist asked the Office of Film and Entertainment to establish a Music Recording Industry
Task Force under the Florida Film and Entertainment Advisory Council,
to make recommendations regarding strategies for strengthening and expanding Florida’s current music recording industry.
Governor Crist requested that the task force place special emphasis on supporting the growth of Florida’s culturally rich and diverse
music industry as well as recommend strategies for:
- Preserving our music heritage, promoting continued creativity, and assisting the state’s music industry in reaching its full potential.
- Identifying and promoting existing resources and establishing new ways to showcase Florida music and talent.
- Protecting the entrepreneurial products created by lawful producers of sound/audio recordings.
- Working with the Florida Legislature and Florida Congressional delegation to improve support to the music industry.
