Gov. Scott plans on fighting tuition hikes

By Kelli Stegeman. CREATED May 25, 2013

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Governor Rick Scott is strongly warning universities that he will fight against any tuition hikes this year.

Scott made the warning in a letter sent out to the heads of the boards that oversee the state's 12 public universities.

He urged university boards to join him in a "worthy battle" to keep tuition rates flat.

Scott vetoed a 3% hike for the state's universities and colleges included in this year's budget that was worth nearly $50 million.
