TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Rick Scott vetoed $368 million in lawmaker pet projects Monday and blocked a 3 percent tuition hike for Florida colleges and universities.
The tuition increase passed earlier this month was a small piece of the overall $74.1 billion budget, which includes restoring $300 million in cuts to universities from last year, $50 million in incentive awards for faculty and another $85 million in campus construction dollars.
Scott has railed against tuition hikes for the past year, and the veto was expected – although lawmakers have claimed they have the constitutional authority to mandate the hike through the budget and the governor can't legally veto it. But Scott's move is similar to when then-Gov.Charlie Crist vetoed a 5 percent tuition hike in 2007 without a challenge from lawmakers.
