Tallahassee, Fla. – The Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) today released the following statement attributable to Tamela Perdue, general counsel for AIF, applauding the Florida Senate for passing Senate Bill 2-A, the Florida Health Insurance Affordability Exchange Program (FHIX).
“We commend the Florida Senate for coming back during this Special Session and continuing to work on FHIX - a private-sector, free-market solution that will address Florida’s health care marketplace by insuring hundreds of thousands of Floridians and helping to alleviate the issue of uncompensated care, which burdens businesses and taxpayers across our great state.
“The Florida Senate and Senate President Andy Gardiner have been thoughtful leaders on this issue, and we thank them for their continued dedication to finding a Florida solution to health care reform.”
