New version of HB 7055 FAR WORSE than the existing bill
Posted On: Mar 03, 2018

New version of HB 7055 FAR WORSE than the existing bill.

Will the Senate get played again?

Tallahassee— After a week of committee hearings, a plethora of amendments and hours of debate it appears it all was merely a HB 7055 ‘dog and pony’ show to quiet senators still stinging from last year’s HB 7069 debacle.

 

Now the Florida Senate is set to vote on a “delete-all” amendment filed last night by Senators Passidomo and Galvano that brings forward a new version that is FAR WORSE than the existing HB 7055:

 

·        Decertification of “instructional personnel” unions;

·        A sales tax sourced voucher program for unaccountable private schools;

·        Expands to statewide the Principal Autonomy Pilot Program Initiative without any evidence of efficacy;

·        A new undefined “franchise school model.”

 

 

“This is the leadership of the Florida Senate caving once again to House Bully Richard Corcoran.  They are surrendering their leadership duties and trying to force through a bill that has always been a wish list of Corcoran’s priorities — with NO SENATE INPUT,” said Florida Education Association President Joanne McCall.

 

“There is still time for the senate to stand up to the speaker.  Let’s hope they don’t get played again,” McCall said.
