Orlando Sentinel, May 8, 2008

One of Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's legislative priorities this year was to kill certificates of need for hospitals, saying they stifle competition and "have failed to achieve reduced costs and greater quality of care." Hospital officials who decried Crist's initial anti-CON stance are now praising the new, and they say improved, CON law that passed the Florida Legislature on the session's final day.
