Across Florida, the cost of tuition will remain the same after the Governor vetoed a bill that would have increased the cost of school.
The Governor said his goal is to keep the cost of higher education as low as possible. Keeping the tuition low helps benefit families across the state. He says with an increase in tuition it makes it more difficult for Floridians to achieve the “American Dream”.
“Our universities have raised tuition fees 125-percent in the last ten years. It’s making it more difficult for our families to afford higher education,” said Scott.
Tuition hikes have been sought by lawmakers in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
