Friday: Five things to watch in Tallahassee


Technically, this would have been Day 60, The Final Day, Sine Die, of the 2015 legislative session. But most Senate and House leaders have long fled Tallahassee because of the budget impasse.

So rather than the usual frenzied emotions that animate Tallahassee during a typical ending of session, today will be characterized by isolation, despair, and, perhaps, madness.

But hark, there is a glimmer of activity that just might provide a way out of this morass.

Keep your eye on the state Supreme Court. Senate Democrats have filed an emergency motion seeking to have the House ordered back into session. The House has until 10 a.m. Friday to respond to the petition.

Another thing to watch: Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration will hold a public hearing at the Agency for Health Care Administration, 2727 Mahan Drive, on the state's proposal for continuing the so-called Low Income Pool. The $2.2 billion federal-state program provides supplemental funding for hospitals that serve a large number of uninsured and Medicaid patients.
