Budget Awaits Governors Signature

May 13th, 2009 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist received the 66.5 billion dollar state budget Wednesday.

The spending plan includes two billion dollars in increased taxes and fees. Crist isnt saying whether or not hell veto any spending items, but is reviewing legislation that would cap lawyer fees in workers compensation lawsuits.

Im reviewing them both still to be perfectly honest with you. I have great respect for Senator Gaetz and I know that particularly the House was concerned about he workers comp bill, so we are reviewing both of those very closely, Crist said.

The governor has the power to veto spending items he doesnt agree with. He has 15 days to review the budget before he signs it.
