Crist Contemplates Special Session

May 7th, 2010 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist is considering the Democratsí call for a special session on oil drilling. Yesterday Democrats in the state legislature made the call for a special session to write a drilling ban in the state constitution. Legislative leaders say itís not needed because Florida already has a ban on the books, although a majority vote by the legislature could lift the current ban since itís not in the constitution. Governor Charlie Crist says heís considering calling lawmakers back to Tallahassee for drilling and several other issues.

ďIím giving it very serious consideration, particularly as it relates to the spill and potentially other issues. I think more likely than not we will deal with the budget in the line item format but I just want to think about it over the weekend,Ē said Crist.

Crist is also considering calling a special session to deal with political corruption in the legislature and on several county commissions.
