From the Miami Herald‘s Daniel Chang, 05/10/2015:

A federal judge on Wednesday denied a request from Gov. Rick Scott that the court intervene in the state’s ongoing negotiations with healthcare regulators over the extension and revamping of a $1 billion government program that pays hospitals for caring for uninsured and under-insured patients.

Scott’s lawsuit, filed in April, alleges that federal healthcare regulators are withholding approval of Florida’s LIP program in an effort to force the state to adopt Medicaid expansion.
