Florida Special Session

Late Friday afternoon Gov. Jeb Bush called a special session for the week of December 5.

The governor wants legislators to make changes to Florida's Medicaid program, saying if reforms aren't enacted it could consume 60 percent of the state's budget in 10 years.

Lawmakers will also be asked to complete work on implementing a constitutional amendment that authorizes slot machines in certain pari-mutuel facilities in Broward County.
