Crist: Don't let gamble money 'slip away'



Gov. Charlie Crist incorporates the $288 million from the Seminole Tribe into his proposed budget, including $75 million now held in escrow, $62.5 million more expected this year and another $150 million in 2009-10. He says the deal will also provide "at least $129.2 million in 2010-11 and at least $100 million in 2011 and 2012."

"We cannot let this opportunity slip away,'' Crist said.
