Military veterans gather at capitol over "in state" tuition
TALLAHASSEE -- Dozens of military veterans turned college students gathered at the state capitol today.
They are asking lawmakers to make college more affordable by allowing any veteran with an honorable discharge to pay "in-state" tuition rates.
Veteran Andrew Sloan says vets can go anywhere with their benefits and Florida is at a disadvantage.
Andrew Sloan Veteran "Florida is a state that has a lot to offer to vets, ah, it has wonderful job opportunities and great schools, and there is no reason we should put up a barrier to vets who want to come and receive their education and employment here."
Out-of-state tuition rates are generally three to four times in-state rates.
