Florida governor says reimbursement for hospital safe from veto
A year after he chopped a record $459 million from the state budget, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said that he wouldn't try to do it again because legislators already trimmed billions in state money and deeper cuts could be harmful to the state. Crist said the hundreds of millions for state projects are safe, as is Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital. Officials and legislators feared he would cut $20 million in reimbursement-rate money if the hospital didn't embrace a new healthcare initiative.
