Florida legislators weigh in on tuition increases ahead of universities’ funding announcement (Miami Herald)

The expectation is the announcement will be related to the $118 million in new funding the Florida State University System has requested for the 2013-2014 budget. That money would be distributed among the 11 existing schools and tied to performance. But the amount is also notable because is it quivalent to the amount universities would receive if they increased tuition by the maximum 15 percent allowable by state law. At the most recent Florida Board of Governors meeting, members said they would consider forgoing tuition increases if the state granted this $118 million request.
