With House and Senate agreeing to 3 percent tuition hike, what will Scott do?



Florida lawmakers Friday agreed to hike tuition for university and college students by 3 percent, setting up a possible clash with Gov. Rick Scott.

Last year, Scott vetoed a bill that would have allowed the University of Florida and Florida State University the freedom to raise tuition. Scott has not said he would veto a tuition increase this year. After the deal, which came during budget negotiations, a Scott spokeswoman would only say that the governor doesn't support a tuition increase.

Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, said he doesn't believe Scott will veto the hike.
