Senate Dems and Gov. on Same Page



The Senate Democrats had a press conference earlier this afternoon revealing their top priorities. And four out of five of them are similar to those that have Gov. Charlie Crist campaigned on or says he suppports.

They include voting machine paper trails, restoration of civil rights for ex-prisoners, resolving the property insurance and tax crisis and paying teachers more.

Senate Dems also have a priority of attacking affordable health care.

While both Dems and Crist want to pay teachers more, they want to go about it in very different ways. And Dems also want to do something about the FCAT, which Crist has defended.
