Crist Calls Economy Great

February 19th, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist is planning on sending state lawmakers an optimistic message when he gives his annual State of the State address in early March. Crist met with reporters Tuesday to discuss his legislative priorities. They include expanded health care, education funding, and energy efficiency. Over all, the governor plans to say the State of the State is good.

“Florida is on a roll and we’re going to continue to be on a roll. We’ve got almost a 70 billion dollar budget, we’ve got a great economy, we’ve got a great climate and there’s no better place to be,” Crist said.

The governor is recommending more than 40 million dollars for energy efficient programs and research. He also expects the FCAT and Class Size to be issues lawmakers will deal with this year.
