This morning, June 18th, members of our Public
Policy Council and Board of Governors had a chance to sit down with Commissioner
Bostock and see what priories she felt needed some more attention of the coming
Our conversation started off with Bostock running through
the budget deficit at the County level. The County has a $1.6 Billion dollar
budget and every year they work very hard to keep it balanced. This year new
Legislation requiring counties to pay more for Medicaid coverage, the
Commission is looking at different options to cover the gap. Bostock is against
raising the millage if at all possible.
Other topics we discussed included:
- Safe Harbor Funding
- Term Limits
It was a pleasure getting some time with the Commissioner in
a smaller group setting. Thank you to Colliers International for hosting us in
one of their available office spaces here in Downtown St. Pete.
