Crist told SB6 sponsor he would sign bill

Gov. Charlie Crist is wavering on whether he will sign teacher tenure bill. For state Sen. John Thrasher, the lead sponsor, it's mystifying.

"He’s told me he’s going to sign it, and I take him at his word," Thrasher told reporters Thursday. "He told me several times he’s going to sign it.”

Thrasher continued, “He told me personally he liked the legislation. But, you know, people can change their mind I guess.”

Thrasher also floated the idea of a "reconciliation" measure to address problems in the bill. House leaders are preventing any changes to the bill, apparently concerned about the Senate's slim 21-17 margin of approval.
