A Tale of Two Chambers: Florida Legislature 2012

TAMPA (2012-3-9) -

The regular session of the Florida Legislature wrapped up in Tallahassee Friday. And you could call this year, "A Tale of Two Chambers."

The House has been quiet, disciplined, and relatively civil. But the Senate has had more of a civil war, with moderate Republicans and Democrats joining forces to oppose the conservative Senate leadership.

Even the state Supreme Court sided with the House, unanimously approving the House redistricting maps, but rejecting the Senate's plan.

Peter Schorsch, a political consultant and author of SaintPetersblog.com. Peter, reacts to the Supreme Court's ruling -- and the whole 2012 legislative session.
