The Florida Legislature’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research said economic recovery will come later than expected. In July, economists predicted Florida’s slump would begin turning around by the start of 2010. Now, they say it’ll be three months later, and Amy Baker, who heads the office, says the recovery itself will be slow. Florida’s unemployment rate is at 6.6 percent, a 14-year high and above the national average.
