Crist Renews Call for Special Session

November 5th, 2009 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist is reiterating a call for a special session to secure federal dollars for a commuter rail. Plans to build a rail system in Central Florida and enhance the Tri Rail system in Southeast Florida have been knocked off track two consecutive years. Recent news from Washington has lawmakers reconsidering a deal. If state lawmakers dont do something for commuter rail, they might not get federal support for high speed rail. Crist is urging lawmakers to act quickly.

I want to talk about this rail project to maybe have the opportunity to have a special session sooner than later because it will help Florida, said Crist.

Lawmakers could be called back to Tallahassee as soon as December to vote on commuter rail.
