Nearly 1,600 jobs hang in the balance as Florida’s legislature prepares to restructure the Florida Department of Health.
According to a 154-page report released on Tuesday, lawmakers proposed cutting 1,608 health department jobs. In addition to the massive job cuts, several divisions of the health department will be consolidated and reorganized.
