Crist Mum on Holdbacks

March 20th, 2009 by flanews

The Governor’s office is ordering state agencies to hold back 15 percent of their fourth quarter budgets. The quarter begins in April. The announcement was made yesterday just hours after reporters asked Governor Charlie Crist if he was anticipating any holdbacks.

“’Are you anticipating some form of announcement from you regarding additional holdbacks. Maybe as much as 15 percent,’ one reporter asked Crist ‘Not that I have been briefed on,’” Crist replied.

Governor Crist tries to distance himself from bad news. He’s remained optimistic about the state’s economic turmoil ever since he took office. Crist says the current 3.4 billion dollar budget hole can be filled with stimulus money.
