The Redistricting Back Up Plan
Its a case of just in case.
The Florida Legislature has filed a federal lawsuit, just in case the Justice Department rejects its redistricting plans.
A house spokeswoman said the case was filed to reserve a place on the court calendar if needed.
The Justice Department first must review the legislative and congressional maps for compliance with the voting rights act.
The legislature will meet in special session wednesday to begin revising the senate map that was rejected last week by the Florida Supreme Court.
That work should be finished next week, to send the map back to the supreme court for further review.
