January 21st, 2009 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist has until January 29th to make changes to the budget package lawmakers passed earlier this month.

Crist has the power to line item veto spending cuts. The package includes a billion dollars in cuts to education, health care and social service programs. He said some of the cuts lawmakers approved.

I have certainly have thought about it theres no question and theres some items that concern me and Im pretty close to some definite decisions on some of those as it relates to education public safety and a few others, but probably well wait to next week to do so, said Crist.

Crist said last week he wants to veto cuts to an 11 million dollar program that rewards teacher for success in the classroom.
