Gov. Jeb Bush Rethinks Proposed Tuition Increases

By  | 

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush proposes to lower tuition increases in his revised budget.

The governor's supplemental budget plan asks for an extra $26 million for state universities. That move cuts next year's tuition increase for five percent to three percent for in-state undergraduates.

Bush says tuition increases are starting to affect students attending school.

"Three percent is easily doable. It's just the way the economy works. Prices go up after a while," adds Florida State University student Tim Ewasko.

The move to change the tuition increase comes less than a day after members of the Florida Student Association announced their campaign against the governor's plan.
