Gov. Charlie Crist vetoes Florida teacher pay bill; what happens next?
By HANNAH SAMPSON AND CRISTINA SILVA
Gov. Charlie Crist on Thursday killed the bill that prompted sickouts, sit-ins, street protests and a flood of opposition throughout the state as Republican lawmakers vowed to try again next year -- if not sooner.
Calling it ``significantly flawed,'' Crist decried the bill -- which would link teacher pay to student test scores and eliminate tenure for all new hires -- as both overreaching and too vague.
``We must start over,'' he said.
