TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - It would cost more to drive a car and go to college under the Florida Senate's first draft of a new budget, and some top school officials could take pay cuts.
The appropriations bill is set for release late Friday afternoon, but many details emerged this week during committee hearings.
That includes a variety of fee increases for such things as driver licenses and motor vehicle titles and an 8 percent tuition hike for college students.
Local school superintendent salaries would be cut by 5 percent.
School board member salaries could be no higher than those for legislators, meaning a reduction for many.
