Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, Governor Jeb Bush released the following statement on the FloridaSupreme Court's decision to not hear McCall vs. Scott.
“Today’s ruling marks a monumental moment in the lives of the more than90,000 students who are able to receive a quality education throughFlorida’s Tax-Credit Scholarship program.
“The Florida Supreme Court’s decision on the case is also a powerfulreminder to entrenched special interests that when policymakers workhand-in-hand with Florida’s families, students win.
