Action Alert- Possible Tax Increase (Medicaid) |

Action Alert- Possible Tax Increase (Medicaid)

'via Blog this'

I spoke with a lobbyist from the Florida Small County Coalition yesterday. He asked for TTPN assistance on an issue they are working on. The matter has been reviewed by our Steering Committee, and this action alert has been authorized. The issue revolves around Medicaid payments, and is in HB 5301. The State is wanting all counties to pay costs that they may not have incurred, or may already have paid. This would lead to local tax increases to pay for the added expense. We are opposed to this bill, as it is not a proper use of tax dollars and is fiscally irresponsible.
