CFO Stunned by Governors Change of Tune

June 18th, 2008 by flanews

The states Chief Financial Officer says shes stunned at the Governors change of tune about the possibility of drilling for oil off Floridas Coast. Just weeks ago Governor Charlie Crist was saying Florida was the last place he wanted to see oil drilling. He changed his tune this week. CFO Alex Sink held a late afternoon news conference asking the Federal Government to quit tossing around the idea of drilling for oil in Florida. Sink said oil companies are taking advantage of the economic downturn to push their agenda.

The oil companies have been waiting for years now for just an opportunity like this which we are suffering with four dollar a gallon gas to get their nose under the tent and convince Americans its time to resume oil drilling, said Sink.

Sink says Americans should focus on conserving and the government needs to focus on alternative energy sources not drilling.
