The Buzz is incoming House Speaker Ray Sansom, R-Destin, will put shape to his administration tomorrow by naming Larry Cretul of Ocala as speaker pro tempore, Ron Reagan of Bradenton as majority whip and Bill Galvano of Bradenton rules chairman. He'll also keep Adam Hasner as majority leader.

While it may not happen tomorrow, Sansom is expected to name one of the Cuban-American lawmakers as appropriations chairman, helping Miami retain some of its power in the House. We previously reported Sansom's other moves including naming Mike Hansen as chief of staff.
