Gov. Rick Scott Signs HB 7069 Education Bill into Law at Orlando Catholic School

In a move surprised few and angered many, Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday signed into law a massive education bill that legislative leaders crafted behind closed doors in the final days of their spring session.

He did so at an Orlando Catholic school that serves children with special needs, highlighting the bill’s $30 million expansion of private school scholarships for students with disabilities while downplaying the criticisms. Several House members and former Senate president Andy Gardiner joined him.
