Florida Legislature Passes Bill Authorizing Student-Led Inspirational Messages

Last Thursday, the Florida House of Representatives passed by a vote of 88-27 and sent to the governor for signature SB 98. The bill authorizes school districts to adopt policies allowing inspirational messages to be composed and delivered by students at student assemblies. The bill already passed the state Senate in early February by a vote of 31-8. According to last Thursday's Palm Beach Post News, Gov. Rick Scott is expected to sign the bill into law.
