Governor Rick Scott says he wants to protect Floridians from hospital ‘price gouging’.

The governor said this week he wants hospitals to post their prices and average payments, in an easily accessible place on their websites.

The hospitals say he went too far with that statement they’re calling it mean spirited.

Should there be more transparency in hospital pricing? What’s your experience of paying for care… have hospitals been upfront about what they’re charging?

Then Florida’s congressional redistricting hearing wraps up. A judge now has to decide which map to go with. Will anyone be happy with the result?

And Orange County Public schools says the just released data from the Florida Standards Assessment Tests… don’t add up to a whole lot.

It’s the Friday news round up with Orlando Sentinel columnist Beth Kassab, Daytona Beach News Journal editor Pat Rice, Orlando Political Observer editor Frank Torres, and Nick Evans from WFSU in Tallahassee.
