In case you missed it….

     Links to a few recent news articles about health coverage for working families in Florida.

    Florida House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston: “My main concern is not what’s in the budget but what’s not in the budget. It fails to adequately protect the uninsured in the state…it’s a budget that doesn’t recognize that many low-income Floridians suffer from health and financial consequences and don’t have access to health care.”
