With one month left in the regular 2020 legislative session, lawmakers are headed into overdrive as they push their bills to a vote. As committees wind down, it will be increasingly difficult for proposals to make it to a full House or Senate vote.
Postsecondary education, especially policies tied to workforce education and preparation, continue to gain traction. Since FCAN released its session preview last month, the Legislature has heard bills related to dual enrollment, apprenticeships, college affordability, and degree attainment.
FCAN’s 2020 Florida Legislative Session Update includes proposals that have gained traction in the Legislature and stand to impact Florida’s students via postsecondary education and workforce training in the Sunshine State. This preview is the second in a series of FCAN releases during session to track policy updates related to college and career readiness, access, and success.
