TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Already conservative, the Florida Legislature has sharpened its turn to the right this year.

Conservatives flexed their political muscle during the 60-day session that ended Friday and they expect to solidify their control next year.

Only a couple key vetoes by now-independent Gov. Charlie Crist slowed the right-wing agenda.

Opponents of an anti-abortion bill that passed in the session's closing hours are looking to Crist, who quit the GOP to run for the U.S. Senate without party affiliation, for another veto.
