Healthcare law upheld: What's next for FL?
Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who dipped into his personal fortune to campaign against passage of the healthcare law and, after being elected, refused to implement it, told reporters Thursday he would need time to decide his next move. Several parts of the law require state cooperation starting in 2014, but Florida so far has taken little action. "Sadly, we're behind years at this point," said Rep. Mark Pafford, D-West Palm Beach, the ranking member on the House Health Care Appropriations Subcommittee. Mark Wilson, president of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, said that's okay. There is no sense in embracing the law until Thursday's ruling is fully understood and the politics of the elections are allowed to play out, he said.
