Volume 29, Number 4

Dear Seminole Family,

Last week, state economists, met to amend their revenue estimates. Their new figures show that state lawmakers will have an additional $4 billion in general revenue funds over the next two years, more than initially expected. This revision comes out while lawmakers begin to make budget decisions as they craft the 2022-23 fiscal year budget.

Three of our trustees, Maximo Alvarez, Drew Weatherford, and Vivian de las Cuevas-Diaz passed their first hurdle towards being confirmed last week when they were approved by the Education Committee. This week they will move to the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee as the next stop in the confirmation process.

We are also preparing for FSU Day at the Capitol which will be on Wednesday of next week, February 9th! Please plan to come to capitol to by 12:15 pm to be a part of the festivities.

Below you will find updates on some of the bills that we are tracking related to the work of the University. Please reach out to me or Toni Moore if you have any questions about these bills or anything related to the legislative process.

I wish you all the best and am grateful for your interest in keeping FSU and the state university system in Florida the best in the country as we continue to educate the next generation of elite students.

Yours in Seminole Spirit

Clay Ingram
