Crist: Fewer vetoes this year
Crist again hinted that he planned to veto a lot less than he did last year, acknowledging that state spending can help fuel a faltering economy.
"That might be one reason why you see less vetoes this week than you saw last year," Crist said. "The Legislature did tremendous work. To reduce the state budget by almost $6 billion dollars, they've already worked extremely hard....Out of respect for their good work and out of a need of to have some of these local projects to continue to come along, particularly as it relates to water issues and roads, things that really touch the people."
