The Florida Legislature is sharply defending a new Congressional map it drew up during an August special session.
The well-organized Senate redistricting process that produced a bipartisan vote for the first draft of the chamber’s map now appears to be fraying, with Republican infighting prompting the majority to delay a committee vote on the plan that was scheduled for Tuesday.
Florida lawmakers will meet next week to decide whether to change the date of the August primary election again.
After the 2010 census, the state of Florida was in line to gain two new Congressional districts. Monday, the Florida Senate finally released proposed districts starting next year.
