URGENT - ACTION IS NEEDED TODAY!!!!!!!!

Hopefully, I have your attention.  The Governor has NOT signed the Bright Futures SB 374 as was inferred. 

The Home Education Foundation Facebook and newsletter stated that the bill HAD been signed, but it had only passed the Legislature.  The Governor still has the ability to veto this bill.

The good news is that he HAS signed the SB2500, the appropriations bill that has the Bright Futures language in it. They are in Special Session now, working on the budget.

YOUR CALLS ARE NEEDED!

The Governor has not signed SB 374 YET, but your Action is needed to call to encourage him to sign the bill.
HB 7069  and HB 15 also have several issues of importance to home schoolers in those bills as well.

  1. Removing the prohibition on students taking FLVS courses in grades 2-5 unless the student has previously been enrolled in a public school for kindergarten and first grades.
  2. Expansion of the disabilities and a $30 million increase in funding for the Gardiner Scholarship.

ALL of these bills will benefit ALL students and home educators:
Please call or email the Governor’s office today.  Ask that the Governor sign SB 374, HB 7069 and HB 15 to benefit the student of Florida.

The phone number is (850) 717-9337 or email via this page:  http://www.flgov.com/contact-gov-scott/email-the-governor/.
