With the Florida Legislature ready to convene for its regular session at the start of the new year, state Rep. Dan Daley, D-Coral Springs, filed a proposal last week to expand the Educational Dollars for Duty Program (EDD).
“The Educational Dollars for Duty program provides educational funding for Florida National Guard soldiers and airmen. This legislation expands the program by allowing service members to take online courses and covers a portion of the cost for courses taken out of state,” noted Daley’s office.
“Florida National Guard soldiers and airmen work hard, dedicating their lives to serving our great state. When we have the opportunity, we must find ways to give back to these men and women – this legislation does just that,” said Daley.
So far, there is no companion measure over in the Florida Senate.
Daley won a special election to represent parts of Broward County in the Florida House back in 2019. Before that, he served on the Coral Springs City Commission.
