Sen. Rick Scott Sponsors Legislation to Increase Education Options for Military Families

June 14, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott announced his co-sponsorship of the Education Savings Accounts for Military Families Act of 2019. This legislation would increase education options for active duty military members and their families by creating an Education Savings Account to give families the opportunity to choose the school or education provider that works best for them.


Senator Rick Scott said, “During my time as Governor of Florida, we worked hard to support our military members, veterans and their families both during and after their service. That included securing funding and legislation to help veterans get a great education, find jobs and open their own businesses. The Education Savings Accounts for Military Families Act builds on our efforts to help make Florida the most military and veteran-friendly state in the country – and provides military families the flexibility to choose which educational opportunities are the best fit for their family.”
