Supreme Court

rulings impact

FL differently
News Service of Florida

Like most Americans, Floridians kept a watchful eye on the U.S. Supreme Court over the last week, as the justices issued closely-divided and contentious decito sions on the Voting Rights Act and gay marriage. But e impacts in Florida varied widely from those in other parts of the country.
SStFlorida doesn't allow any kind of gay marriage or domestic partnerships, meaning that only a ruling far wider than anyone expected from the Supreme Court would make a difference in the Sunshine State. And the state is, unlike many others, at least partially covered by the Voting Rights Act (VRA), meaning any decision on that federal law was actually more significant in Florida than elsewhere in the country. The difference in the impact of the rulings were clearly illustrated in the comments from the opponents of the courts' conclusions.
Tn House Judiciary Chairman Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala,
a strong supporter of the state's ban on gay marriage: 3h "In Florida, I think there's been a very clear statement
