Crist says there will be a special session on no-fault insurance -- stay tuned

Gov. Charlie Crist said Wednesday he "would be in favor of a special session before Oct. 1" but he "doesn't know whether he will call one soon or not" because he intends to first consult with House Speaker Marco Rubio and Senate President Ken Pruitt "and get their wisdom on what the timing should be." He said a special session is not a certainty but "keep posted."

"I favor the continuation of personal injury protection,'' Crist said. "It's important to hospitals. It's important to me.''

Likely included on the agenda will be the expansion of Kidcare, the governor said.
