Years 2017 and 2018 have had many endure devastating natural disasters including Hurricanes Maria, Irma, and Harvey, as well as numerous wildfires along the western states. This is a petition to give out-of-state American Citizens, legal immigrants, and refugees in-state tuition rates/state residency for public Florida colleges and universities if the student can prove that they have been displaced by a natural disaster that affected a place where they were already residents and arrived at the State of Florida within a year of the natural disaster occurring, and if the student can prove that they have the intention to continue to reside in the State of Florida. These changes could be reflected through amendments to Chapter 1009.21 of The 2018 Florida Statutes.

This should be done in order to give students under the outlined circumstances a way to continue their education in pursuits of a degree, etc. without adding to the financial burden that is experiencing a natural disaster.
