TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) The justices rejected arguments Thursday by the Republican-controlled Legislature that titles of both measures are
misleading and violate a requirement limiting citizen initiatives
to a single subject.

The proposed state constitutional amendments would set standards
for congressional and legislative redistricting.

The high court also ordered state economists to revise a
financial statement saying the amendments will cost ``millions of
dollars.'' The justices called that forecast ``misleading.''
