Tallahassee, FL — The Florida Democratic Party released the following statement in response to the Florida Senate’s failure the corporate trigger bill (SB862).
Statement from Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant:
“Today, in a bipartisan effort the Florida Senate stood up for families, teachers, and students across the state by striking down the corporate trigger bill for the second year in a row. This harmful legislation would have allowed for-profit corporations to seize control of tax-payer funded schools, and put the education of our children in jeopardy. We commend Florida Senators for again defeating this harmful legislation.”
