Crist Called on the Carpet over Stimulus

August 11th, 2009 by flanews

A US Congressman is calling out Governor Charlie Crist for being slow to spend stimulus dollars on highway projects.

According to Congressman James Oberstar, the chairman of the House Transportation Committee, Florida ranks dead last in stimulus spending on highways. Crist said Florida is not in last place and says the state is just being deliberate in its spending.

We have a very thorough process as it relates to new projects and bidding and things of this nature in Florida, which I am very proud of. It ensures the integrity of how those dollars are spent which is incredible important to me and the people of Florida, said Crist.

Florida has 1.3 billion dollars to dole out for road projects, but according to Congress just two percent of the money has been spent on projects currently under construction.
