Stimulus package may include $4 billion in medical aid for Florida's poor

Miami Herald, January 29, 2009

If the present House version of President Barack Obama's stimulus package passes Congress, Florida could get $4.25 billion over two years to help expand medical services for the state's poor. In a study released by Families USA, researchers say that provisions of the House bill could provide $87 billion to bolster hard-hit state Medicaid programs, including $4.25 billion for Florida for the period from October through 2010.
