Florida House Unexpectedly Adjourns Over Dispute with Senate
Citing an impasse with the Senate over Medicaid expansion, the Florida House abruptly ended its session today. With three days left in the scheduled legislative session, the Senate may choose to stay through Friday.
The Senate has insisted on discussing the expansion of Medicaid during budget negotiations, but the House has refused to do so.
House Speaker Steve Crisafulli stated he plans to return for a special session to resolve the conflict prior to a July 1 deadline.
