FAPSC 2009 Legislative Agenda

As Tallahassee gears up for the 2009 Legislative session, “budget” is the only game in town.  Florida faces a shortfall of $1 to $2 billion for this fiscal year, and the potential for another $4 billion shortfall as the 2009-2010 budget is crafted.  There is plenty of bad news to go around.

There is also good news.  Because we are not dependent on tax dollars, our schools will continue to provide access to education that puts Floridians to work.  And we’ll do it with minimal investment of state funds.

During 2009, FAPSC will focus on the following issues:

• Monitor the financial aid budget to prevent cuts so our students can continue their education.
• Amend the Florida Prepaid program to provide greater choice for contract holders to use their benefits at more of our institutions.
• Strengthen transfer of credit policies and opportunities for our students.
• Monitor economic development/workforce budgets to be sure our schools are included in any stimulus or retraining efforts.
• Monitor the House interim project on nursing education for recommendations and any resulting legislation.

We will provide a Legislative Update in each E-Flash, as appropriate. 

Stay tuned!
