Gov. Charlie Crist has officially put the kibosh on the idea of convening a special legislative session next week to debate placing a constitutional amendment banning offshore drilling on Florida ballots this November, but he further signaled his desire to call the session at some point.

In an appearance with the Miami Herald editorial board, he indicated the holdup is in the Florida House, not the Senate. According to The Buzz, Crist said, β€œ[The House] pushed very hard previously to get drilling in the Gulf and maybe time will helpΒ bring them around to the view that isn’t such a wonderful idea given what has happened.”
