Gov. Rick Scott signed the Legislature's plan on Thursday to redraw the state's congressional districts, likely paving the way for more lawsuits surrounding the once-a-decade redistricting process.
Scott's office quietly announced the move in the afternoon without comment. A letter from Scott to Secretary of State Kurt Browning simply said the bill, SB 1174, had been signed.
The signing was expected; Scott was largely hands-off during the redistricting process and hadn't given any signs he might veto the plan.
