Polk a Loser in Redistricting Plans Approved By Senate

The Florida Senate approved the shape of its 40 districts Tuesday with state Sen. Paula Dockery, R-Lakeland, voting against the plan and Lakeland officials considering a challenge, perhaps even a lawsuit. The new redistricting measure splits Polk County into four Senate districts with only one containing a majority of Polk residents. Lakeland is split among three different Senate districts.
