Crist Still Reviewing Budget

May 13th, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist says he isnt planning any budget vetoes, but he hasnt looked through the entire budget yet. Lawmakers passed a budget that cuts government spending by about 5 billion dollars. Schools will lose close to a hundred and 50 dollars a student. Lawmakers approved cutting health care spending by about a billion dollars. Governor Crist applauded the work of lawmakers for balancing the budget in such a tight year, but adds hes still going over their work.

Were reviewing the budget right now and you know it takes time to get through that, but our folks are working very hard, said Crist.

The new budget year starts July first.
