Florida’s legislature failed to pass a budget in this years legislative session. The House and Senate are opposed on major issues related to health care policy and medicaid expansion. Interested readers will want to visit the Beacon, the blog at The Independent Institute’s website, where DeVoe Moore Scholar Dr. Randall Holcombe posted a blog on the ongoing budgetary crisis. Florida’s legislature is set to reconvene for a special three-week session beginning June 1st. Also on the agenda is a discussion on how to spend money apportioned for the maintenance and preservation water and environmentally important land set aside for preservation under the voter-approved Amendment 1. However, if legislators fail to pass a budget, that could mean a state “government shutdown”.
