Gov. Scott Expected to Veto Tuition Hike
When Florida Governor Rick Scott signs the state budget into law on Monday, he's expected to use his veto pen on a number of items, including a proposed 3 percent tuition hike for the state's public universities and colleges. The increase could have raised as much as $50 million for the schools.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who has maintained a steadfast opposition in the last year to raising the cost of college for students, will veto a proposed 3 percent tuition hike. Despite the governor's earlier warnings the Republican-led Florida Legislature included the hike in a $74.5 billion budget passed earlier this month.
