Hey Gov. Crist, please veto these bills

St. Petersburg Times columnist Howard Troxler offers his suggestions on which bills Gov. Charlie Crist should veto from the just-finished legislative session. "Heck, what fun is having a Legislature if you can't second-guess it?" Troxler quips.

We'd like to know which of Troxler's suggestions you agree with most. Cast your vote:

Senate Bill 360 loosens Florida's growth rules.
House Bill 227 says that local governments that impose impact fees on growth have the "burden of proof" if a builder challenges their validity.
SB 2626 goes a long way toward deregulating wall telephone service in Florida.
HB 903 is the latest round in the battle over worker's compensation in Florida.
SB 2198 says that no matter how much money tobacco companies lose in smoker lawsuits, they only have to put up a total of $100 million in appeal bonds while they fight on.
HB 1065 grants total immunity to airports and their employees, no matter what methods they use to get rid of wildlife.
SB 2276 creates a DNA database for every person arrested in Florida on a felony charge.
B 1248 determines how much Florida schools should charge students or their parents for lost textbooks more than 1 year old.

Did Troxler miss a bill you'd like killed? Let us know.
