Tallahassee, Florida -- Gov. Charlie Crist and Republicans in the Florida Legislature have yet another issue to disagree on.

This time they are parting ways on the need for a special session in September to address issues related to the BP oil spill.

House Speaker Larry Cretul says the final reports from six working groups of lawmakers show there are no issues that require legislative action right now.

Gov. Crist accuses Republican leaders of continuing to be counterproductive.

"We could do some productive things but if the Legislature is of a mind as we saw in July to be counterproductive then why bother."

Last July, Cretul and Senate President Jeff Atwater pulled the plug on a special session called by the governor to push a constitutional ban on offshore oil drilling.
