New Congressional District Map Hits Fla. Legislature Floor
Posted Monday, August 11th 2014 @ 11am

Florida lawmakers will begin debating a new congressional district map today.

 A judge ordered the legislature to convene for a special session to redraw two North and Central Florida districts that were ruled to be too friendly towards the GOP.

 Some Democrats fear it could hurt the largely black District 5, which was one of the districts the ruling targeted.

 Lawmakers want to approve the map by Wednesday.

 In all, seven districts will be affected.
