The Waiting Continues

April 2nd, 2009 by flanews

The waiting continues for the governor and lawmakers wanting to find out if Washington will send an extra 2.7 billion dollars for education.

Florida has to apply for the money but the application may not be ready for another two weeks. Governor Charlie Crist met with agencies heads from several state departments this afternoon to discuss the best way to spend the 13 billion stimulus dollars. Governor Charlie Crist said lawmakers should prepare a budget that banks on the state receiving the extra money.

I think they can plan to be optimistic and incorporate those funds for education. Every indicator we have gotten so far seems to be in line with the fact that well probably get it. Im just anxious for that to actually happen, said Crist.

Of the 13 million dollars the state is expecting two billion will go to county health clinics. The money is expected to create 300.
