Former State Senator Paula Dockery Discusses the Legislative Session Including the Debate over Medicaid Expansion and the Parent Trigger Bill
Good morning- welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up weâ€™ll talk about the almost completed work of the 2013 state legislative session. Joining us will be former state senator Paula Dockery from Lakeland.
But first one listener comment. After yesterdayâ€™s interview about the vast amounts of methane hydrates located at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico the conversation veered to energy efficiency and automobiles. Hereâ€™s what one listener had to say after yesterdayâ€™s program.
The annual state legislative session is set to end tomorrow. Some major issues have been settled- but the fate of one million Floridians who stand to get Medicaid coverage under the Obamacare program is still up in the air. Weâ€™re going to talk about whatâ€™s happened in the session with former Republican state senator Paula Dockery. She served three terms in the Florida House then was elected to the Florida Senate in 2002. She served two terms in the Senate and was term limited out. Briefly she ran for the Republican nomination for Governor in 2010.comments powered by Disqus
