Crist Shows Interest in a Special Session

November 24th, 2008 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist is beginning to show interest in a special session to handle the budget deficit.

Crist has been pushing the decision back for months saying he wanted state economists latest prediction before he made a decision. Last Friday economists predicted a 2.2 billion dollars budget shortfall. Now Crist says hes just waiting on agreement with legislative leaders before he calls lawmakers back to Tallahassee.

Im trying to get the temperature of both the House and the Senate their willingness to do the same. I dont think it would be bad idea, but I do think it would be a bad idea to come here without you know a real agreement of what to do when we got here, said Crist.

According to sources close to the governor and political blogs Crist will call a special session for the weeks of either January 5th or 12th.
