The 2019 Florida Legislative Session starts tomorrow, March 5. Building Florida’s talent pipeline through access to high-quality credentials and degrees beyond high school remains a priority for policymakers. FCAN has created a preview of Governor Ron DeSantis’ top budget priorities and the legislature’s policy proposals related to Florida postsecondary student success.
This legislative preview includes a brief overview of the governor’s recommended budget and an outline of bills filed to date by members of the Florida Senate and House of Representatives, which includes policies about career and technical education, early access to college and career pathways, and other proposals impacting college students.
The 2019 Florida Legislative Preview is the first in a series of FCAN releases during session to track policy updates related to college and career readiness, access and success.
