PIP Added to Special Session

October 1st, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist added Personal Injury Protect to the agenda of the special legislative session beginning later this week. Key lawmakers had balked at adding the no fault insurance requirement, which expired at midnight this morning. But Crist has said all along that it was important. When lawmakers didnt add it to their agenda, Crist did, although there are still questions about whether there is enough of an agreement about what to do. Pressed for specifics of what he wants, Grist told reporters Representative Bogdanoff and Senator Posey have done great work. They have a product they have confidence in, ah, that they mutually agree on, so I think we are in a good place, ah, you never know. They have to get here, they have to vote and all that stuff. I think it looks pretty good.

Later in the news conference, Crist called no fault and easy lift but Senate President Ken Pruitt says there is no agreement and it will be up to House and Senate members to decide if anything is done.
