Florida Senate Insurance Bill Action: February 28, 2012

Feb 28, 2012


The Florida Senate Budget Subcommittee on Health and Human Services Appropriations (“Subcommittee”) met today, February 28, 2012 and considered SB 668 by Senator Alan Hays. 

The Subcommittee initially did not pass the bill, defeating it by a vote of 2 to 4.  After the vote, Senator Eleanor Sobel moved to reconsider the vote, since not all senators on the Subcommittee were in the room when the vote was taken.

The Subcommittee ultimately passed SB 668 by a vote of 4 to 3.  

The bill is moving through the process with two amendments that were adopted in the Senate Health Regulation Committee.

The House version of the bill is scheduled to be heard on March 1, 2012.
