The Florida Supreme Court on Monday released an oral argument schedule for the Feb. 29th hearing on newly drawn re-districting proposals, reports the News Service of Florida. The court is hearing a challenge to the proposed state House and Senate political boundaries by a coalition of plaintiffs including the League of Women Voters, La Raza, and the Florida Democratic Party. Each side will get 90 minutes, with attorneys for the House and Senate splitting that time equally in defense for their respective maps.
