Last year, Florida lawmakers didn’t approve a bill giving all state workers the same contribution for their health coverage. But Tom Flanigan reports that bill may be more successful this year.
Governor Rick Scott had pushed the idea almost from the moment he took office. All State of Florida employees would get five thousand dollars a year to help them buy health insurance, whether individual or family coverage. That concept resurfaced in the House Health and Human Services Committee, chaired by Robert Schenck, Republican of Spring Hill.
