Day 11: Three takeaways from the special session

It's Day 11 of Florida's special session on congressional redistricting. Two days to go and still no deal on a new map. Here are three takeaways:

Eyes on the House: What will the House do? House redistricting chairman Jose Oliva, R-Miami Lakes, praised several components of the Senate's revised map, and the House delayed the start of its Thursday floor session until at least 3 p.m., a sign that it was taking the Senate map seriously.

Senate on hold: The Senate calendar listed a floor session for 10 a.m. Thursday, but Senate leaders told members to stand by and be ready to convene at any time.

Extension watch: The session is scheduled to end at noon Friday, and legislative leaders said they had no plans to extend the session until next week. But in this state capital, this year, anything's possible.
