In Joe Negron's first year as Florida Senate president, the Stuart lawmaker won a losing battle for a $1.6 billion reservoir to curb Lake Okeechobee discharges into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers.
In his second — and last — year as senate president, Negron aims to boost state university scholarships and cement the funding into state law, he told TCPalm Friday.
A graduate of Stetson, Emory and Harvard universities, Negron said he wants to make sure any student who’s accepted to the Florida university of their choice can afford to attend. The Republican's aim isn't free education for all, just financial aid for the needy.
