FLORIDA (WTXL) - Florida Governor Rick Scott has signed a bill making it easier for parents and residents to challenge school textbooks and school library books.

The legislation allows parents and residents to review instructional materials and then challenge them as inappropriate before a hearing officer.

It was one of five education bills signed by Scott, including increasing funding by $100 dollars per student in the state budget.
