Get The Link: Free Florida Handbook




Among the best tool to learn about Florida’s government was once The Florida Handbook.

First published in 1949 by the late Allen Morris, who was the House clerk from 1966-86, the book was a compendium of history, information about government and statistics such as voting results.

When Morris died in 2002, publishing was taken over by his wife Joan Morris. It ended publication in the 2011-2012 legislative years.

Now The Florida Handbook is back…for free. (A CD version can be obtained for $3.)

The Florida House has posted a researchable updated version online starting today.  It can be found through this link. 

“The Florida House has always been the ‘chamber of ideas,’ which is why we are proud to bring back the most well-known chronicle of trends, history and facts in the Sunshine State,” said House Speaker Will Weatherford (R-Wesley Chapel).  “Our all-new 2014 edition of ‘The Florida Handbook’ picks up where the Morris Family left off and is available for everyone to access online.”

I agree.

It is a great resource for anyone with a computer courtesy of the Florida House.
