Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

This year's leaders same as last year's leaders



Nothing official yet, but our sister blog the Buzz is reporting that Florida Senate president Jeff Atwater will keep the same education appropriations committee chairmen who held the posts last session.

They would be Stephen Wise, R-Jacksonville, to oversee preK-12 education funding, and Evelyn Lynn, R-Ormond Beach, to run higher ed appropriations. Official appointments are expected perhaps as early as tomorrow. An announcement on House committee chairs is likely Friday.
