Response to Governor Crist's Proposed Education Budget

House Democratic Leader Franklin Sands (D-Weston) issued the following statement:

“I am encouraged today by Governor Charlie Crist’s decision to break from Republican legislative leaders and to talk about providing more money for education in Florida.

“It is evident that Governor Crist and the people of Florida owe a great deal of thanks to President Barack Obama and members of Congress for providing Florida with economic stimulus dollars that are helping our state meet critical needs.

“I will reserve judgment on some of the governor’s education policy proposals, such as his call to freeze the Class Size Amendment, until they can be more closely reviewed. But I remain hopeful that the governor’s recommendations will begin a fruitful, bipartisan discussion about how Florida will enhance its public schools and grow its economy.”
