There’s a stalemate over healthcare in Florida’s legislature. That means the House and Senate will likely fail to pass a new state budget by Friday, the scheduled end of the legislative session. Economic analyst Hank Fishkind says the uncertainty created by that kind of impasse can cause a negative ripple effect throughout the economy that isn’t limited to the healthcare sector. Fishkind spoke to 90.7’s Nicole Creston from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul airport where he’s traveling for business.
