Key & Notes                
* Sponsors/Cosponsors
** Lori Berman was elected to Senate District 31 in a special general election on April 10, 2018 and will serve in the Senate in 2018-2019. The House District (90) she held will be filled in the 2018 general election. Her votes while a member of the Florida House are reflected here.  
^  HB909 - Passed three House Committees, and those votes are reflected in the scorecard. There was no floor House vote on HB 909; but it was ultimately inserted into a comprehensive education package (SB 4) that passed the House and Senate. The Floor vote on the education package is not included in the scorecard because the final House and Senate floor vote were on the comprehensive education package bill, SB 4 (and not solely on the chilling speech issue).
^^ Rep. Josie Tomkow was first elected to House District 39 in a special election on May 1, 2018, and did not participate in the 2018 Session.
^^^ Rep. Javier Fernandez was first elected to House District 114 in a special election on May 1, 2018, and did not participate in the 2018 Session.
