Governor Charlie Crist went to Washington with a list of federal priorities he wants the state's congressmen to address.

Tuesday, he left with a lengthy list of state issues to
consider.

The Republican governor pushed for a larger federal effort in
the Everglades restoration, the creation of a national insurance
fund, more federal Medicaid money, a commitment to clean energy and emissions reductions, and protection of the state's role in the space program.

Then congressmen asked for Christ's help. After the meeting, Crist met privately with the House Appropriations Chairman David Obey to ask that the federal government keep its financial commitment for Everglades restoration funding.
