KidCare Failed to Pass Florida’s 2014 Legislature

FL:  Vance Aloupis, statewide director for the Children’s Movement of Florida, and Karen Woodall, executive director for the Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy, were quoted by CBSMiami/News Service of Florida regarding the 2014 Florida legislature’s failure to pass the KidCare bill.  Aloupis stated, “I don’t understand why, in a year when we have a . . . surplus (of more than $1 billion), we can’t spend more on what we know is foundational for children.”  Woodall added that the KidCare’s failure to pass “was a huge, unnecessary disappointment.”
