Following the final passage of HB 7019, which creates greater transparency and more accountability of Florida’s higher education system, Governor Rick Scott today released the following statement:

Governor Rick Scott said, “I appreciate the Legislature, especially bill sponsors Senator John Legg and Representative Elizabeth Porter, for continuing to focus on the needs of Florida students. The costs of textbooks and materials will now be publicly available to students well ahead of class registration so they can make informed decisions. I will continue to work with the Legislature so every student has the resources and support they need to get an affordable, quality college education in Florida.”

HB 7019 provides greater transparency to students regarding college costs; helps hold the line on graduate school tuition; informs students of required and recommended textbooks before the start of classes; requires our colleges and universities to adopt policies that make textbooks more affordable; and requires the Board of Governors and the State Board of Education to annually study and make recommendations on how to make college more affordable.
