Ron DeSantis Ready to Push Mandatory E-Verify, Higher Teacher Salaries as Legislative Session Starts
Riding high in the polls, Gov. Ron DeSantis will look to push several items through the Legislature which kicks off its regular session on Tuesday.
DeSantis has been a breath of fresh air in Tallahassee with legislators praising his more open style than his predecessors--namely former Gov. Rick Scott--and it’s paid dividends.
While mostly supportive of the governor’s proposed budget, state House Speaker Jose Oliva, R-Miami Lakes, continued to offer some resistance to DeSantis’ call to raise teacher salaries to at least $47,500 a year.
