Crist's Monday call sked: All about rail



Still no official call for a special session on rail, but sources say talks continue even as the union representing rail workers balks at the proposal that they say fails to protect their workers. They're holding a press conference within the next 15 minutes to lay out their opposition, which could affect the votes of lawmakers including Sen. Tony Hill or those facing a primary and wanting union support.

Meanwhile, Gov. Charlie Crist's afternoon schedule consists of calls to Senate President Jeff Atwater, transportation secretary Stephanie Kopelousos and House Speaker Larry Cretul. And we're pretty sure he's not just calling to see how their Thanksgiving dinners went...

Stay tuned.
