Gov. Charlie Crist asks Sen. John McCain for channel dregding funds



Gov. Charlie Crist today sent a letter to his old pal U.S. Sen. John McCain, asking for federal support (i.e. cash) for the dredging of the Mayport channel in Jacksonville, part of planned upgrades to the naval station there.

Crist tells McCain and Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, that he worries about a House proposal to strip from the federal budget $46 million that has been slated for the project.
