Veterans tuition bill passes committee

TALLAHASSEE - Legislation filed by Sen. Jack Latvala passed the Senate Education Committee Dec. 10. The bill, which will waive out-of-state tuition fees for veterans, will be called “The Congressman C.W. Bill Young Veteran Tuition Waiver Program.”

This bill, if it passes the Legislature, will allow honorably discharged military veterans and reservists to attend schools in the Florida College System or in the State University System and take advantage of in-state tuition costs.

Currently, gaining in-state status for many veterans would require them to live in Florida for a year to establish residency and then attend college. Veterans must reside in Florida when physically attending the institution or while taking online courses.

Sen. Latvala decided to name his bill after the late Congressman Young because of his many years of support and dedication to veterans.

“I can’t think of anything more meaningful than to have Congressman Young’s name attached to our bill which will help veterans returning home attend school and improve their chances at employment,” Latvala said.

The Senate bill must still be heard by the Senate Sub-Committee on Education Appropriations and the Committee on Appropriations. The sponsor of the companion bill, House Bill 35, in the Florida House is Rep. Kathleen Peters.
