TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Gov. Charlie Crist is reinforcing his message for lawmakers who are considering legislation that would allow insurance companies to increase their property insurance premiums on home and business owners. His advice: Don't do it.
Crist said Wednesday that he'll veto such legislation and do it with pleasure. He went on to say that legislators wouldn't override his veto, noting the political peril that could accompany such a decision in an election year.
The Republican governor, who is leaving that office to seek his party's nomination for the U.S. Senate, has been fighting members of his own party on the issue the past two years. But he left no doubt Wednesday about his veto promise.
