Tallahassee – Representative Matt Hudson (R-Naples) today filed HB 119 Health Care. HB 119, a health care deregulation package, amends the Health Care Licensing Procedures Act and the various authorizing statutes of entities regulated by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to reduce, streamline, and clarify regulations for those providers.
“This legislation removes several burdensome regulations, creates jobs, and is a cost savings to the state, all of which are extremely crucial for getting the state of Florida back on the right track,” said Representative Hudson.
Representative Hudson also stated, “HB 119 will be essential in fighting the axis of unemployment and ensuring that the tax dollars of Florida’s citizens are not being wasted.”
Similar legislation filed by Representative Hudson during the 2010 regular session passed both the House and Senate before being vetoed by former Governor Charlie Crist. Representative Hudson will serve as Chairman of the Health Care Appropriations Subcommittee during the upcoming 2011 regular session.Tweet
