The Florida League’s 2019 legislative priorities re health care are:
- Support expansion of health care access and affordable coverage for low income, uninsured, and under insured under an expansion of Medicaid.
- Oppose any barriers to abortion access including gestational limits, state mandated counseling or extended waiting periods.
- Oppose any state funding of anti-abortion women’s health centers (known as crisis pregnancy centers).
- Support funding of critical health care services such as KidCare, mental health clinics, substance abuse, family planning services and expanded dental care.
