Coat of arms or logo

The Florida Legislature is the legislature of the U.S. State of Florida. It is organized as a bicameral body composed of an upper chamber, the Senate, and a lower chamber, the House of Representatives. Article III, Section 1 of the Florida Constitution, adopted in 1968, defines the legislature's role and how it should be constituted. The legislature is composed of 160 state legislators (120 in the House and 40 in the Senate). The legislature's primary purpose is to enact new laws and amend or repeal existing ones. It meets in the Florida State Capitol building in Tallahassee.
