  • Using the 2018 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Standard Occupational Classification Manual to classify the lawmakers occupation, we found that the majority of legislators were pulled from the ranks of ownership, management or the legal world professions occupied by a small, elite fraction of the overall Florida workforce.
  • Anyone who has to be home to do their job or make a living has a very big structural challenge to participating in the Legislature, said Sen. Tom Lee, a Republican home builder from Thonotosassa and the former Senate President.
  • Some, like Braynon, propose measures that would professionalize the Legislature: increasing lawmaker pay, regulating a lawmakers outside employment even turning the Legislature into a full-time body.
  • The notion of a citizen legislature people from all walks of life, business, and industry combining their experience and perspectives to form a government has been a guiding principle of our country since its inception, the current Senate president, Joe Negron, said in a statement.
  • The Times defined a legislator’s profession as the job that paid him or her the majority of their reported non-Legislature income.

  • TAMPA When Lightning coach Jon Cooper says the penalty kill has been a sore subject for some time, it’s not a punch line.
  • But it appears the team’s defensive issues have bled into the penalty kill, which has been successful just 75 percent in the last 25 games, dropping the unit to 25th in the league (78-percent).
  • After reviewing video of the last 20 power play goals allowed, it appears like it’s been a perfect storm of problems on the penalty kill.
  • The penalty kill problems start in the dot, with the Lightning one of the worst teams on faceoffs.
  • Girardi’s strength is shot-blocking, and the Lightning isn’t getting in enough lanes on the penalty kill.
