Florida tuition legislation goes to the governor

FLORIDA   --  A three-percent tuition hike in the Florida budget is causing concern for college students around the state.

This means that the cost for thirty credit hours will rise about 93-dollars a year.
Governor Rick Scott has been against it since January.
The state legislature tried to make the hike veto-proof by telling universities what to charge instead of putting a dollar amount in the budget.

Governor Scott's lawyers are telling him that there is precedent for vetoing what is called "Provisio Language."
Scott isn't tipping his hand completely just yet.
It's really impacting our families. And I worry about families like mine growing up that didn't have a lot of money for tuition."

Friday, May 24th is the last day for Scott to make his budget decisions.
