Senate president: More prudent to focus on budget only

Senate President Ken Pruitt says that despite a deal on no-fault insurance reached between Sen. Bill Posey and Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff that this not the time to deal with PIP and that lawmakers should focus on cutting the budget only during next week's special session.

"Senator Posey has done a masterful job to forge an agreement with Representative Bogdanoff on PIP, and the Senate thanks him for his leadership on the issue. It is in my judgment, given the current budget shortfalls and the serious fiscal challenges in the forecast, that the most prudent action on the part of this Senate would be to focus on our constitutional duty to have a balanced budget."

(Oh and does anyone remember the days when Bogdanoff was working hand-in-hand with Pruitt as the head of his non-profit organization....)
