Updates on HB-7

For those of you concerned about the recent legislation surrounding HB 7 there has been some movement by the Board of Governors. They have released a draft policy which includes how public universities are supposed to enforce the provisions of HB 7 along with consequences for individual public universities which are found to be in violation of enforcing the measures of HB 7.

The Board of Governors will be meeting at UCF on June 29-30 and will vote on this draft policy at that meeting.  You can go here if you want to watch that meeting on Zoom, I am not sure about in person access to the meeting.

There is currently a federal lawsuit challenging this case with important rulings coming in the next week or so about how this case moves forward.

UFF will disseminate guidance on these policies and measures soon. When that happens I will send that out to everyone.

If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.

In solidarity,

Robert Cassanello,
UFF-UCF, President
