GAETZ ACCEPTS PPACA COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION
To: All Senators
From: Don Gaetz, President
Subject: PPACA Recommendations
Date: February 20, 2013
Please see the attached letter (here) from Chair Negron and Vice Chair Sobel regarding the recommendation from the Select Committee on PPACA that Florida should not establish a state or partnership exchange at this time.
I appreciate the Committee’s thorough consideration of this important component of the federal law. Considering the extensive review and bipartisan consensus with which this recommendation was put forward, I intend to accept the recommendation of the Chair and Vice Chair.
The Senate will not put forward legislation to create a state exchange during the 2013 Legislative Session.
