The People’s Lobbyist

April 13th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

For the last few days, Governor Charlie Crist has been doing the unprecedented. He has been attending House and Senate Committee meetings in an effort to make his wishes on legislation known. Crist told reporters the idea is to let lawmakers know exactly how important an issue might be. Today, he attended the House Policy and Budget Council to argue for money for stem cell research and new voting machines.
Crist says he wants to make sure they get the message “I think it’s important to the people. Whether its stem cell, to heal people, or a paper trail, to validate our elections. I don’t want Florida to be embarrassed in the future, in our elections, and we have a
big election next year. And so, I just want to make sure the membership knows it’s important to the people, so I am conveying that today.”

Money for stem cell research and new voting machines remains in doubt as
lawmakers hammer out the final details of the state spending plan.
