Among the handful of veterans’ bills considered by Florida lawmakers this year was legislation that would have granted in-state tuition rates to all veterans using the Post 9-11 GI Bill.
The lower, in-state tuition waiver was a top priority for Florida student veterans.
State Rep. Kathleen Peters of South Pasadena sponsored the House bill.
“The senate wouldn’t hear it,” Peters said. “I’m extremely disappointed about it. The veterans’ organizations are upset about it. The veterans’ school organizations are upset about it.”
