DeSantis signs ‘Live Healthy’ package spending $1.5 billion to bolster health care programs

Jackie Llanos writes:

"Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Thursday a package of bills aimed at increasing the number of health care workers and promoting innovation in the industry. Over the next 10 years, the laws, which state lawmakers prioritized during this year’s legislative session, will cost the state $1.5 billion.


“It’s commendable that the Legislature has put together such a robust package that invests in the health care workforce as a means to increase access to care,” said Erica Monet Li, a policy analyst at Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added], in a statement to Florida Phoenix when the Legislature passed SB 7016 and SB 7018."
