Episode 14: Special FHIX The Rotunda
THE ROTUNDA - Special session is in full swing as Rep. Mia Jones receive praise for leading Medicaid expansion talks on the House floor, though she tells Gomes it will take miracle to see passage of the Senate’s Health Insurance Affordability Exchange or FHIX plan.

Gomes also chats with E.W. Scripps Tallahassee bureau chief Matt Dixon about his coverage of Governor Rick Scott’s Economic Growth Summit and his big transition to head up POLITICO’s growing team of political and policy writers at the Capitol. Gomes also chats with environmental advocates as they attempt to convince lawmakers to increase funding for Amendment 1 during budget negotiations.

Have a horror story about flying to the Capitol? Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum has heard them all and says the city is working on reforms, which includes convincing the Legislature to ease restrictive rules around air travel for state workers.
