About 40,000 Families that purchased prepaid college and university savings plans with the state of Florida could see the costs of those plans drop.

Governor Rick Scott is promising to keep tuition low at the state’s public colleges and universities. It’s on his list of education priorities if he wins a second term. The cost of higher education has consistently been a priority for the governor. Earlier this year, the Florida legislature stripped most public universities of their ability to request tuition hikes. An immediate effect of that move are decreases in the state’s prepaid college program, meaning, more than 56,000 families could see savings.
