Keep tuition break for Florida’s DREAMers

The Miami-Dade delegation should reject this effort. Already, Miami Dade College, the institution attended by many of the nearly 900 students who received the reduced tuition in the 2015-16 academic year, has indicated it will help fight State Bill 82.

The bill filed last week by state Sen. Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, would erase the provision that allows Florida DREAMers to pay tuition that other Florida residents pay, instead of being punished for their legal status with a higher cost…
“I just don’t think it’s good public policy for the state,” Mr. Steube said. We would ask, How good is public policy that will cost taxpayers even more in the long run — in unemployment, in creating fewer taxpayers with decent jobs, in a less-educated populace?…
The hero of the moment was Republican State Sen. Jack Latvala, who came up with a plan to keep the bill alive. Student activists also kept the heat on Senate leaders, staging news conferences and pressing for meetings. Gov. Scott told reporters he considered the bill a priority.”
