A move to require the federal government to enter mediation with Florida over the future of the Low Income Pool was shot down by a federal court in Pensacola on Wednesday.
Gov. Rick Scott issued a statement saying his administration will “continue to fight for this important funding for low income families any and every way we can.”
The governor said it is “disappointing” that the Obama Administration “keeps delaying their decision on funding the Low Income Pool in Florida.”
Attorneys for the Scott Administration on Mondayfiled a motion to require the federal government to enter mediation with the state over continued LIP funding. The judge ordered the federal governmentto respond to the order.
