Budget Do-Over?

January 16th, 2009 by flanews

State Senate Minority Leader Al Lawson is calling for a budget do-over.

Lawson sent a letter to Governor Charlie Crist asking him to veto the entire budget and bring lawmakers back to Tallahassee for a second special session. Lawson said the state needs to close tax loopholes to reduce the spending cuts.

Im asking the governor to call us back into session to do it right. We need to raise revenue. Education is being cut. Programs for the elderly are being cut. We did a very poor job up here this past week, said Lawson.

Crist has 13 days to veto budget items and sign the budget pack.
