Senate won't do Supreme Court split

in Uncategorized by

The Senate on Monday took up a bill dealing with the state Supreme Court, but removed the main provision sought by the House, which would bifurcate the court into a section to deal with civil matters and one to deal with criminal matters, reports the News Service of Florida. The measure, which the Senate began discussing Monday evening, still requires Senate confirmation of justices, but the split into two divisions was a major idea sought by House Speaker Dean Cannon. ?]>
