TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Senate passed a bill that seeks to ensure lawmakers actually live in the districts they represent.

The bill passed unanimously Friday specifically spells out the definition of a primary home to make sure lawmakers don’t list an address in their district as being their home when they actually live somewhere else.

State law already requires lawmakers live in their district, but questions were raised last year about whether about a half-dozen lawmakers were flouting the law.
