Luis Moros started this petition to Florida State Senate and

A bill in the Florida Senate would cut the amount of Bright Futures Scholarship money some college students receive.

SB 86, filed by Republican Sen. Dennis Baxley of Ocala, would require the grants to be re-evaluated each semester, and would limit funding for certain majors that don't lead "directly to employment."

According to the bill, the Board of Governors and the State Board of Education would meet annually to approve which career certificate, undergraduate and graduate degree programs are eligible for full funding and which are not. Students studying fields that are not on the list would receive reduced funding for up to 60 credit hours of coursework.

In other words, State financial aid for college would be based on whether a student’s course of study is likely to result in a job after graduation. If you oppose to this bill, please sign this petition that will be sent to the Florida Senate in the upcoming weeks.
