As we reported yesterday, a deal has finally been reached on medical-liability legislation. The formal announcement was made this morning at a press conference attended by Governor Jeb Bush, Senate President Jim King (R-Jacksonville), House Speaker Johnnie Byrd (R-Plant City), and a host of key House and Senate negotiators.
The legislation will be taken up during Special Session D, which begins next Tuesday, August 12.
We will release an analysis of the legislative package as soon as more details become available.
