Budget Vetos Coming

January 27th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

At his morning briefing, Governor Charlie Crist says he will act on the budget reductions passed by lawmakers this morning. Crist says he will restore funding for some items cut by lawmakers, but the spending will not exceed a 300 million cushion lawmakers left in the state piggy bank.

Crist also says Florida will be the winner of the Superbowl, refusing to pick either Arizona or Pittsburg as a favorite. He did note his hometown, Altoona, is near the Steel City.

Asked about Dan Gelber getting into the US Senate race, Crist called Gelber a good house member and new State Senator. Asked it envisioned himself facing Gelber for the seat, he replied “Not Today”.
