Calm Cretul

February 6th, 2009 by flanews

Floridas Incoming House Speaker Larry Cretul is already making changes in Tallahassee.

Last week Cretul took over from embattled House Speaker Ray Sansom after the controversy surrounding his dealing with a state college caused his colleagues to vote him out of office. Still Cretul hasnt ousted Sansom. Instead hes put him in charge of the Policy Council Committee. Cretul said hes noticed a change in the Florida House during his first seven days in leadership.

“Its a little more calm I feel. I’m feeling it walking the halls and visiting with members. They are now focused on the work they need to do and I’m a little calmer,” said Cretul.

Cretul is also creating a new committee to study the states economy and tax structure.
