Florida Legislature Will Convene Special Session on Aug. 7
The Florida Legislature will convene a special session at noon on Thursday, August 7, 2014. The special session is a result of a ruling by Judge Terry Lewis ordering the Legislature to revise its congressional district maps, specifically for the 5th and 10th Congressional Districts.
The Legislature could potentially adjourn as early as Monday, August 11, under a proposed schedule released by House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz. However, the Legislature has until August 15 to revise the maps.
