Senator Pushes New Residency Definition Bill

There's a new effort to clearly define residency under Florida law.

State Senator Jack Latvala says he plans to introduce a new bill for that purpose.

Latvala says it's important for elected leaders to live in the areas they represent.

He points to residency issues not only in the state house and senate, but also in local offices, including Tallahassee and Leon County.

Latvala says his bill will deal with all Florida office holders.

He says he's looking for a sponsor in the state house.
