Senate redistricting plan limps through House

by John Kennedy | March 27th, 2012

The Senate’s plan for remapping its 40 districts cleared the House on a 61-47 vote, with Democrats and Hispanic Republicans opposing the proposal.

Democrats said the measure still protects incumbents and includes a numbering scheme that may still be aimed at giving senators more time in office. Hispanic Republicans said the Senate had failed to create a potential fourth Hispanic-oriented Senate district in Miami-Dade County, instead packing Hispanic voters into three districts.

The plan will go back to the Florida Supreme Court, which rejected the Senate’s first plan. With the vote, the House ended the 15-day special session at 2:32 p.m.
