Crist creates task force on campus security

After meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt, Gov. Charlie Crist signed an executive order creating a 7-member group to study security issues at university campuses.

"I want to listen to ideas in Florida," Crist said. "I think it's prudent. I think it's smart."

Leavitt, along with Education Secretary Margaret Spellings and Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, is conducting a listening tour to gather suggestions and report back to President Bush in late May.

Crist said the task force should finish its work before then.
