After battling for years over how to make healthcare more accessible and affordable, Florida lawmakers landed on a compromise. Instead of expanding Medicaid to cover more people, they decided during last year’s session to attack the cost of care directly, creating a database to make procedure pricing transparent.

In 2012, Florida’s election results were decided by less than one percent. In 2000, fewer than 600 votes separated the candidates.
