Fees legislation: There is a senate and house bills on fees – call your reps! See email from Megan if you are on activlist. It is looking to waive fees including those for technology, financial aid, security access and identification cards. More info on the bill is on the FL House of Representatives site. If you care deeply about this, call your legislators (search here and here), tell them your zipcode, and tell them why this is important to you.
