Untilthe Legislature argued over and passed a two-year budget. Occasionally, a Republican would be elected and tolerated as an oddity. In the s, Florida conservatives began to acknowledge their natural home was in the Republican Party. In Florida, as in many states, they have managed redistricting to keep control of both the state House and Senate.
That job is made easier by the tendency of Democrats to crowd together in the bigger cities. With just one party controlling both houses, the compromises that occur each year as the House and Senate budgets are brought together are more collegial than they used to be.
Last week, both the House and Senate completed a budget and the compromising has begun. It seems a lot of us think being well- armed is the safest way to go.

But their lobbyists were on their toes and the break remains in place. Greyhound racing was a popular gambling pastime in Florida in the s and '40s.
As attendance slipped, the lobby for the tracks was able to get legislative approval for other forms of gambling at the track. Today, dog racing is generally just a cover for more profitable gambling. The Senate Gaming Committee is consid- ering a proposal to let tracks do away with the racing and keep the other gambling activities.
Republicans in the Senate, thinking way ahead, seem to believe that Rick Scott, not Charlie Crist, will be the next governor. If a constitutional amendment they are proposing passes, the next governor may be able to nominate three new Florida Supreme Court justices on his last day in office in as three of the current justices reach mandatory retirement.
In April, the lobbyists will brag to their clients of their achievements or explain how difficult committee opposition was to some profitable legislation.
