The Republican Party has a firm grip on the Florida statehouse, but voters could be disappointed if they expect the 2017 legislative session to hum along like a finely-tuned sports car. Speaker of the House Richard Corcoran, R-Land O’ Lakes, and Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart, may enjoy comfortable margins in their chambers, but the two subscribe to different strands of Republicanism. They along with Gov. Rick Scott shape and direct policymaking in Tallahassee.
