Florida Gov. Crist Wants Construction Sped Up

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist wants state agencies to speed up construction projects in hopes it will give the state's lagging economy a boost.

Crist called agency heads together Wednesday before announcing his "Accelerate Florida" plan to pump more money into the economy. He said pushing up projects like highway and new school construction will create jobs immediately.

The governor said there are $28.6 billion worth of construction projects approved over the last 10 years that have not started, and he wants agencies to see which ones can be pushed forward immediately.
