Florida Legislature Approves New Maps

The Florida Senate and House of Representatives approved revised congressional maps Monday, ending a special legislative session.

The new proposal, drawn up after a Leon County judge last month found a 2012 map unconstitutional, primarily affects districts represented by Congresswoman Corrine Brown of Jacksonville and Congressman Dan Webster of Winter Garden.

But the changes also would spill into five nearby districts.

State Representative Richard Corcoran chaired the House Committee on Redistricting.

He says the new map fixes the issues brought up by the judge.

“It is an excellent map that complies with the judge’s order, and it makes significant improvements over the map that was invalidated,” said Corcoran.

“It makes significant improvements over the map the judge praised in a favorable light over the one that was invalidated. This map beats both of those.”

House Democrats were critical of the process in which the new map was created, claiming they were left out of the design process.
