Opposed to the ACA, Florida Has Rejected Millions in Grants

Florida has refused millions of dollars in grants made available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The state government does not agree with the provisions of the ACA and will not implement the federal law, unless directed by an appellate court.
