Rick Scott warns state agencies of a possible state-government shutdown over expanding healthcare

From Addicting Info’s Elisabeth Parker, 05/16/2015:

Gov. Rick Scott proves Florida’s GOP lawmakers will stop at nothing to deprive 800,000 people in their state from having access to healthcare.

The state’s GOP governor sent letters to state agency heads this week with dire warnings of an impending state government shutdown. Republicans already control Florida’s legislature, but apparently, single-party control isn’t enough to help them get budgets and legislation passed. And now, alas, state budget deadlines loom.

The Sun Sentinel reports Gov. Scott’s letters demanded lists of essential, can’t-do-without functions for each of the various departments in Florida state, in case the GOP-run legislature can’t come to a budget agreement before July 1.
