Scott Comments On Medicaid Expansion, Florida LIP
By Space Coast Daily // April 6, 2015
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Below is a statement from Florida Governor Rick Scott regarding the federal LIP program and medicaid expansion.
“Our priority is to cut more than $600 million in taxes this session and get K-12 education funding up to record levels while holding the line on college tuition. We still have several weeks left for budget negotiations; however, given that the federal government said they would not fund the federal LIP program to the level it is funded today, it would be hard to understand how the state could take on even more federal programs that CMS could scale back or walk away from.”
