Governor Praises Lawmakers for Passing Energy Bill but Waits to Sign It

May 1st, 2008 by flanews

The Governor says a bill meant to make Florida the nation’s environmental leader will be signed into law, but we’ll have to wait. Governor Charlie Crist told reporters he’s excited the legislature passed a bill to lower greenhouse gasses and mandate that new government buildings be energy efficient. Crist says while he can’t wait to sign the bill into law, he will wait.

“I’m really enthusiastic about the clean energy bill passing yesterday. It’s very exciting. They made it clear that Florida will be at the forefront of making a difference in climate change… I hope to be able to sign it at the climate change summit that we’ll have in June down in Miami. I’m very, very proud of the House and Senate in these difficult times they continue to move Florida forward and keep Florida green and make it even better,” Crist said.

Governor Crist announced earlier this week that Florida will host an international climate change summit on June 25th and 26th.
