Florida Council of 100 Letters to Governor Scott

The Florida Council of 100 wrote two letters to Governor Scott concerning SB 1994 and HB 7129 both of which pertain directly to higher education.

The first letter focuses on Senate Bill 1994, which would immediately create an independent Florida Polytechnic. The Council encourages the Governor to “guard the system of accountability that the BOG process represents and veto SB 1994.”

The second letter to the Governor focuses on House Bill 7129 related to creating Nationally Preeminent Universities. The Council states: “As business leaders, focused on building a more prosperous future for all Floridians, we urge you to sign HB 7129 into law.”
