I had mixed reactions after the Governor released his proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. I am glad to see he proposed that our sales tax holiday return in Florida. Many parents and students look forward to this day to get school supplies, clothes, etc. But on the otherhand, I was a little disturbed to see that Governor Bush proposed that undergraduates from Florida would pay 7.5 percent more in tuition, while all others would face a 12.5 percent increase. This bothers me and this should bother you. I don’t know about you, but its already hard enough to get money to go to college and I know several of my peers who are still struggling to this day due to the last tuition hike. Rattlers, its time to stand up and let your voices be heard!
