Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday vetoed a sweeping higher education reform bill that was one of Senate President Joe Negron’s top priorities of the 2017 session, saying that the measure “impedes” the ability of state colleges to provide access to low-cost, quality education. Scott’s rejection of SB 374 halts several of Negron’s reforms intended to make the state’s 12 public universities nationally competitive, “elite” destinations and refocus the Florida College System back to its mission of addressing local workforce needs.
