The Florida Senate Reapportionment Committee is going back to work Tuesday to create yet another new redistricting map.
Five days after wrapping up their second session, lawmakers are back in Tallahassee to take a second shot a legislative redistricting.
In a pre-emptive move, the Florida Legislature has filed a federal lawsuit Monday in Washington, D.C., in case the Justice Department rejects its redistricting plans.
Florida legislators will return to the Capitol on Wednesday, less than a week after the final day of the regular session after Gov. Rick Scott called a 15-day extraordinary session so lawmakers can redo redistricting.
Just hours before adjourning the 2012 session of the Florida legislature, lawmakers learned they will barely have time to go home and see the kids before heading back to Tallahassee, after Gov. Scott called a 15-day extraordinary session beginning Wednesday to deal with a redistricting plan rejected by the Florida Supreme Court.
The Florida Supreme Court issued a mixed ruling Friday over plans to redistrict the Florida House and Senate.
The Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments Wednesday over redistricting maps the Republican-controlled Florida Legislature has drawn for itself, less than two weeks before the March 9 deadline for the justices to rule.
The next stop for the Legislature’s once-a-decade redistricting plans will be a Tallahassee courtroom after Governor Rick Scott signed the plans Thursday afternoon.
The bill hasn’t even been signed by Governor Rick Scott yet, but lawsuits have already been filed over the legislature’s once-a-decade redistricting maps.
The maps that will change the face of Florida politics for the next decade by re-writing Florida legislative and congressional districts are up for votes Friday in the Florida House.
