DescriptionFlorida statehouse politics has found a new home in The Florida Current a news site that aims to provide concise neutral and accurate reporting on politics and policy in the Sunshine State. Originally billed as The Florida Tribune the site began as an arm of LobbyTools a Tallahasse-based legislation tracking and data curation service for lobbyists businesses and other parties interested in up-to-the-minute happenings in the state capitol. As the recession took its toll and Florida newspapers began to curb or eliminate statehouse bureaus LobbyTools jumped from data into the news market.
