ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Gov. Charlie Crist says the federal
stimulus bill will bring tens of thousands of jobs to Florida and
hopefully help plug holes in the state budget.
Of the estimated $10 billion Florida will receive, Crist says
about $1.3 billion will go toward local and state transportation
projects. Crist said 28,000 jobs are created for every $1 billion
spent in that area.
At a Friday press conference, the governor called the stimulus,
"a great infusion for Florida.''
The House is slated to vote on a compromise stimulus bill Friday
before the bill goes to the Senate.
