Florida Legislature

The Republican-controlled Florida legislature today held a special session to name its own set of electors to the Electoral College, a move that Democrats have decried as intended to ensure George W. Bush wins the state's 25 electoral votes, and thus the national election. The Florida Supreme Court's ruling today sets up the possibility that there will be competing sets of electors, if a final vote tally turns in favor of Al Gore. We hear about today's action in the Florida legislature, and what is expected to happen Monday, when the two houses reconvene, as Robert talks to Ginny Brown-Waite, President Pro-Tempore of the Florida state senate.
