Welcome to FloridaRedistricting.org. House Speaker Steve Crisafulli and Senate President Andy Gardiner have called for a Special Session to amend a portion Florida’s Congressional Districts consistent with the July 9, 2015 ruling from the Florida Supreme Court in The League of Women Voters of Florida v. Detzner. The Special Session (Special Session “B”) will be held from August 10-August 21, 2015.
In order for the public to review what the Legislature is considering and allow for all legislative actions to be discussed in an open and transparent manner, legislative staff, in collaboration with counsel, drafted base map that follows the Supreme Court order. Staff began their work by redrawing Congressional Districts 5, 13, 14, 21, 22, 25, 26 and 27 in compliance with the recent ruling of the Florida Supreme Court and to make any necessary conforming changes consistent with Article III, Section 20, of the Florida Constitution.
