Florida's battle over healthcare likely to return in 2016
from The Washington Times
A bruising budget battle that divided Republicans in the Florida Legislature is over for now, but the truce is likely only to last a few months. Legislators passed a nearly $79 billion budget with just days to spare. Legislators had until July 1 to pass a budget or state government would have been partially shut down. They didn’t pass a budget during their regular session because they were divided over healthcare spending. That sparked a stalemate — and finger-pointing will remain when legislators return for their 2016 session.
