    Governor Rick Scott is on his way to meet with Federal officials over funding for Hospitals know as the Low Income Pool, or LIP funding.  The Feds have said they will not continue the program and Florida is suing.

  • Police Memorial beings Tears, Hope, and Concern 1, May4, 2015
    Tears of remembrance filled the Capitol courtyard today as the families of slain police officers and hundreds of officers remembered those who have died in the line of duty.

  • Warring Chambers End Session 1, May1, 2015
    Friday is the constitutional scheduled end to legislative session – but work stopped earlier this week because of a healthcare budget battle. As Matt Galka tells us, even with both chambers not getting anything done, there’s still plenty of political drama, and no love lost, between the two sides. Day 60 of legislative session typically […]

  • What Passed? 1, April30, 2015
    Capitol chaos may have overshadowed what actually got done this session. Matt Galka looks at some of the bills that are only the governor’s signature away from becoming law. It’s quiet at the Capitol. The last two days of legislative session are usually filled with a flurry of last minute lawmaking. But the House quit Tuesday […]

    Here’s their latest release: Democrats continue to hammer House Republicans in vulnerable districts over their early exit this week and are now dropping thousands of mailers in nine swing districts, a day after announcing they were targeting those same districts with robo-calls. “In Tallahassee, Manny Diaz lets the Tea Party pull his strings,’’ reads the […]

    Update: Supreme Court orders House to respond by 10:00 Friday Morning. See the Order here.   A dozen Senate Democrats walked from the Capitol across the street to the Supreme Court today and filed suit, alleging the Florida House acted unconstitutionally when it adjourned early on Tuesday.

  • Senate Says House Should Come Back 1, April29, 2015
    Signs pointed towards the Florida Senate ending session today after the Florida House quit yesterday, but that’s not the case. As Matt Galka tells us, Florida isn’t any closer to a budget with two chambers clearly at odds. The end of the 2015 legislative session is playing out more like a soap opera than a […]

  • Legislative Meltdown Helps Environmentalists Regroup 1, April29, 2015
    Dozens of bills considered important will not pass this year in Tallahassee because the House went home three days early.  As Mike Vasilinda tells us, the State Senate met today anyway, and passed some bills to make a point.
