TALLAHASSEE - Governor Jeb Bush vetoed a bill today that would have charged students more to take credits beyond what they need to earn a degree at a state university or community college.
The measure (SB 2236) would have required students to pay a surcharge for credit hours that exceed 120 percent of the hours they need for a degree.
Bush said the provision shouldn't apply to community college students, many of whom are economically disadvantaged, and it could increase their dropout rate.
He also vetoed a bill (SB 2264) that would have determined when a student who moves to Florida would qualify as a resident for in-state tuition at state universities and community colleges, saying the changes weren't clear and fair.
