Senate President Don Gaetz said Wednesday there is not enough time to find a compromise with the House to extend health care coverage to the uninsured as called for in the Affordable Care Act.

“It appears that the shot clock has run out on the health care issue,” the Niceville Republican said. “But that doesn’t mean that we are going to stop working. I know that Speaker Weatherford and I are committed to try to find some way to provide more health care coverage to uninsured Floridians.”
