Gov. Charlie Crist's veto of an agriculture bill (HB 7103), despite any opposition, is prompting the House to consider an override.
The bill's sponsor, Rep. Trudi Williams, the chairwoman of the House agriculture committee, wrote a letter to Speaker Larry Cretul last week asking for an opportunity to override the veto of a bill "with overwhelming bipartisan support." (An override needs 2/3 support of the House and Senate.)
She rebuked Crist's office for not expressing concerns during the legislative process. If the governor had listened to the discussion, "they would have heard the overwhelming testimony 'of the people' in support of this bill."
