Stepped outta committee for a few mins only to discover Chair @VoteRandyFine opined about a 5-10 yr @UCF shutdown. I hope this is a joke. The 69K students, 13K employees, 112K addl jobs + $8B economic impact depend on UCF. Reckless rhetoric w/many lives on the line isn’t funny. https://t.co/5LLoGfQrT4— Rep.

This is extra, and I’m the Queen of being extra.— Rep. Anna V. Eskamani 🔨 (@AnnaForFlorida) February 13, 2019
Accountability is one thing— unnecessary and extreme punishment is something else.@UCF contributes a LOT to our state economy and fosters much needed talent for industries across FL. Let’s be wise in how we handle this. https://t.co/wQfLljQtRj
