The House expects to take up several education issues in the first floor session after returning on Monday from the weeklong Passover/Easter break.
One proposal is a school-choice measure (HB 7083) calling for changes in charter-school laws. A part of the bill allows operators of charter schools in other states applying in Florida must be considered “high-performing charter school systems.” It could open the door for a variety of operators to open charter schools statewide.
Another proposal (HB 7069) changes requirements for early-learning and child-care providers.
The House also expects to vote on a measure (HB 255) banning insurers from discriminating against customers based on gun ownership.
