Tampa Fl here. It is getting worse. Job loses are staggering. Fl has no income tax so no lose there. Sales and property taxes are the major source of revenue for state and county governments. No sales so no revenue for the state or local government. The shut down happened during the near end of the tourist Season. That will never be made up. Daisy is closed as well as Universal and other parks.
