Governor Charlie Crist said he hopes there will be a special legislative session on on a proposed constitutional amendment banning drilling for oil in state waters.
It's pretty definite; I mean, you know, I've wanted to do it for quite some time. And as I've stated previously, some in the leadership in the House have been reluctant to do so. The Senate has seemed a lot more amicable about having a session to ban oil drilling off our coast. But I am, I remain hopeful that we can form a consensus, and maybe as early as next month be able to do so â€” and talk about renewables at the same time. I mean, it only makes logic to me that we should do that.
