Governor Reconsiders Tuition Increase

When the governor unveiled his new budget, the only fee increase was for college tuition, a five percent hike for Florida residents and seven and one half percent for students from out-of-state.

But Jeb Bush is apparently having second thoughts, telling reporters he’s working on a supplemental budget that would drop the tuition plan.

The governor’s decision to reconsider tuition comes less than a day after the Florida Student Association announced a campaign to thwart the governor’s plan.
