Florida Governor Rick Scott, a Republican, has signed legislation giving in-state tuition rates to students who graduated from high schools in the state but who lack the legal documentation to reside in the United States, The Miami Herald reported. Some conservatives in the state view the actions of the governor as a reversal of past pledges. But the governor acted as some Republicans urged him to sign the bill. Further, other parts of the legislation will make it more difficulty for most public universities to raise tuition rates (on all Florida students) and the governor plans to cite that part of the bill in his re-election bid.
