About House of Representatives, Florida

Florida is not so peculiar --  the Legislative Branch will keep making the laws and Floridians will keep breaking them. Consisting of the Senate (with about 40 Senators) and the House of Representatives (120 Representatives), the Legislature makes laws, determines general policies to meet the state's problems, and delegates limited rulemaking power to select agencies. The Legislature meets yearly to conduct business, and special sessions may be called by the Governor or by a joint proclamation from the President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives. Either house may initiate legislation on any subject, and a two-thirds majority vote in each house is needed to override the Governor's veto.
