Dear Patriot, there is still time to save the Hope Scholarship!
The bill (HB 1403) that would eliminate the Hope Scholarship has passed its second committee and has been scheduled for its last committee this Tuesday, January 22nd. We are hopeful there will be an amendment however as of this time it has not been filed yet.
Last year alone, the Hope Scholarship helped over 500 children get out of unsafe learning environments and gain access to a different school that better suits them.
Take action now and send this petition to State Rep. Tomkow and the House Education Committee. Let them know you support the Hope Scholarship and want the protections that it provides to remain.
The scholarship is a victim's bill that provides students the ability to attend a private school of their choice.
But some in the state legislature want to toss it in the dustbin of history and leave vulnerable students open to ongoing harassment from other students or school officials without providing a lifeline.
We can’t allow the state legislature to eliminate this powerful tool that is saving the lives of children across the Sunshine State.
Help protect the hope for Florida’s students. Send this petition to the state legislature now and help protect the Hope Scholarship with a needed amendment.
