The bill would also merge Sarasota’s New College with Florida State College, and that was the focus of a column opposing the bill written by a bi-partisan group of Florida House members from Sarasota, Manatee and Pinellas counties | ALSO: The chair of the Central Florida Development Council argues against the change.
