It’s About Florida: Redistricting

Aug 20, 2015

Welcome to It’s About Florida. A monthly discussion program tackling the key topics of interest to our state. I’m Lynn Hatter. The Florida Supreme Court recently ruled against state lawmakers in the Congressional map, ordering the legislature to redraw 8 districts which they say favor a political party or the incumbent. Lawmakers are doing so, but they’re not doing it quietly. The proposals include splitting up old districts and overhauling one North Florida district that’s long been considered gerrymandered. And Florida lawmakers erase and redraw lines, current Congressmen and women are making big decisions about their political futures. That’s ahead on It’s About Florida.
