POLITICO’s Matt Dixon Discusses Legislative Infighting

Conflict Between Republican Lawmakers is Part of Larger Battle

“There’s going to be some inherent tension with more traditionally pro-business Republicans and some of the Republicans the trial lawyers have done a pretty good job of getting elected. That’s probably spurring some of what we’re seeing this year specifically, but to a larger context…when there’s one-party rule there is generally going to be some in-fighting.”
Matt Dixon, Senior Reporter, POLITICO Florida

Watch Matt Dixon, senior reporter with POLITICO Florida, on the latest edition of the Florida Chamber’s Bottom Line. Dixon explains how the ongoing in-fighting between Republicans in the legislature on issues ranging from pre-judgment interest to economic development incentives is the result of the long-running clash between pro-business politicians and those supporting the plaintiff trial bar.
