November

Speaker-designate Richard Corcoran on Wednesday released the Florida House leadership team for the 2016-2018 term.

Of note: Corcoran has handed powerful posts to his likely successors as speaker: Jose Oliva of Miami Lakes will chair the powerful Rules and Policy Committee. And Chris Sprowls of Palm Harbor will chair the Judiciary Committee, which often handles controversial social and criminal justice issues.

The team is heavy on Miami lawmakers with five members of the Dade delegation. As well, it includes just one woman: Speaker Pro Tempore Jeanette Nunez of Miami.

A list of subcommittee chairmen has not yet been published.

Here's the full commitee list from Corcoran:

Speaker Pro Tempore: Jeanette Nunez, R-Miami
