The coalition will launch a business canvass in downtown St. Cloud and begin an outreach effort at public events and to the share of uninsured Floridians in La Rosa’s district and many other legislators around the state.
La Rosa, along with Florida House Republican leadership, refused to expand healthcare to Florida’s uninsured during the last legislative session. With little more than 100 days left to support expanded healthcare access, we risk giving away the $1 billion in federal funding allotted for 2014 to another state. This is the legislature’s final chance to protect Florida’s uninsured before more than one million Floridians are forced to go without healthcare coverage.
