Pruitt: Ask voters for elected ed commish



Sen. President Ken Pruitt told media organizations today that Senate Republican leadership will be working two major education priorities, which will be in a joint resolution that would go to the voters.

One part would be a measure to go back to electing an education commissioner, a measure Democrats have been pitching, which passed the Senate last year. The other part would allow voters to "clarify" the power of the Board of Governors, in particular making sure people know that the Legislature, not the BOG, sets tuition.
