Florida Lawmakers Convene Special Session

2015 Special Session

Nine days after announcing the dates (June 1-June 20, 2015) the Florida Legislature issued the proclamation for the special session.

The call is wide open, including Medicaid expansion, elimination of certificate of need law, direct primary care, state group health insurance changes and the budget and conforming bills and tax relief.

The 2015 legislative session came to an end without the one must pass bill: the General Appropriations Act, or the budget.  The fiscal year for the State begins July 1 so a budget needs to be in place no later than June 30.
