Governor Said People Want More Tax Cuts

January 31st, 2008 by flanews

One property tax vote down and more are on the horizon. Governor Charlie Crist, back at the Capitol after a long campaign, told reporters the people want more property tax breaks. Crist said he’ll meet with the state legislature to discuss more tax cuts. He also said if the amendment is challenged in court is will be upheld.

“It’s not going to backfire,” Crist told reporters Thursday. “I congratulate the people for putting it in the Constitution. As I understand it, it was a tremendous turnout on Tuesday. The more we can educate people about their power to vote and the power that the people have to exercise their right to democracy, the greater opportunity they will have to influence the future of this great state. I just couldn’t be more pleased with their performance, their taking this so seriously on Tuesday, and how they turned out in tremendous numbers.”

Floridians approved the referendum with 64 percent voting for the amendment.
