This week, state House Speaker Chris Sprowls, R-Palm Harbor, announced he was reappointing state Rep. Randy Fine, R-Brevard County, to the Education Commission of the States.

“Representative Fine’s record for raising standards and accountability in Florida’s education system will serve him well on the Education Commission of the States,” said Sprowls.“Representative Fine will serve as a strong leader in this national effort to improve our schools, colleges and universities.”

“The Education Commission of the States gathers and analyzes data concerning education needs and resources as well as encourages research in all aspects of education,” the speaker’s office noted. “The Commission was established over 50 years ago as an interstate compact on education policy.”

Sprowls pointed to Fine’s work on education during his time in the Florida House. Currently, Fine leads the Florida House PreK-12 Appropriations Subcommittee and serves on the House Education and Employment Committee. Previously, Fine led the House Higher Education Appropriations Subcommittee and on the Education Committee.

“A champion for school choice, Representative Fine believes education is the great equalizer in American society and wants every parent to have the ability to choose the right school for their child,” the speaker’s office noted. “Representative Fine authored and passed legislation to expand Holocaust education in Florida schools, appropriate security funding for Jewish Day Schools and hold school districts more accountable.”

First elected to the Florida House in 2016, Fine represents parts of Brevard County.

Last month, Sprowls named state Rep. Chris Latvala, R-Clearwater, to the Education Commission of the States.
