Special Session

November 10th, 2008 by flanews

Florida TaxWatch, a government watchdog group, is asking Governor Charlie Crist to call a special session to clarify the corporate income tax law. Others, including Floridas Chief Financial Officer, think a special session will be needed to deal with declining sales tax revenues and a possible budget deficit. Governor Crist was asked if he planned to call a special session later this month when lawmakers will be in Tallahassee for the Legislatures Organization Session.

Well, maybe. I need to look at it. Ive gotten a couple of calls about it, so I need to check into it, said Crist.

In weeks past, the governor has said he wants to wait until state economists meet later this month before he makes any decisions about a special session. State economists are expected to announce another budget shortfall, in their November estimating conference.
