Tallahassee, FL (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist has extended an
emergency order lifting weight restrictions on trucks transporting
freeze-threatened crops through Jan 7.

Crist's original order, which was issued Dec. 10, was already
extended once but would have expired Friday.

In a statement issued with his executive order Wednesday, Crist
said he wants to make sure timely precautions are taken to protect
Florida's agricultural interests from continued freezing
temperatures.
