Tallahassee, FL ? Majority Leader Lizbeth Benacquisto released the following statement regarding Governor Scott?s decision to support the expansion of Medicaid in Florida.
?I appreciate Governor Scott?s thoughts on the issue of Medicaid expansion. President Gaetz formed the Senate Select Committee on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in order conduct a comprehensive assessment of the impact of the law on Florida, and evaluate the state?s options under the law. I have the utmost faith in Chairman Negron as he and the committee continue to examine the potential outcomes of the healthcare law and look forward to their recommendations to the Senate.
