Bad revenues won't sharpen Crist's veto pen

Gov. Charlie Crist said continued bad news, when it comes to revenue numbers, won't make his veto pen more stringent. There's Buzz that April revenue dollars are going to be down even more.

"We're reviewing the budget right now. . .those aren't really determining factors in deciding on what may or may end up in the budget. But I look forward to being as fiscally prudent as I can," Crist said.

When asked if he or his office had already identified budget turkeys ripe for the veto pen, Crist said: "I've made no judgments yet."
