Bright Futures heading for STEM emphasis?

From a story in the Sun-Sentinel:

Florida’s popular Bright Futures program could face dramatic changes in the coming years, as the state looks to direct most of its scholarship money into degrees that meet the state’s workforce needs.

That means students who pursue degrees in science, technology, engineering and math, known as the STEM fields, would get most of the Bright Futures dollars, currently about $425 milion.

“I think [it’s] the only way we will protect Bright Futures,” said Evelyn Lynn, R-Ormond Beach, who chaired a Senate committee on higher education funding this year.
