TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- A group of Floridians in urgent need of health care will meet with legislators at the Florida Capitol on March 11.

These Floridians who find themselves in the "coverage gap" will meet with Representative Amanda Murphy and deliver more than 11,000 petitions to the Speaker and Senate President. The petitions urge them to expand access to health care for 1.1 million Floridians in need of coverage.

The people in need of coverage are Reed Mahoney, Victoria Stout, Angel Cardenas and Denise Wade.
