Legislature has plan to facilitate renaming of BK Roberts Hall

The Florida legislature is working on a plan to rename BK Roberts Hall. A proposal to give universities the authority to rename buildings has been mentioned by the senate president (see article). This would allow the legislature to duck directly facing the renaming issue, but if passed FSU would gain the right to rename the building for someone other than Roberts. FSU President John Thrasher has previously announced he wants the name changed after an FSU committee last summer recommended unanimously that the university do so. The legislative session begins in March 2019.
