The Legislature begins its annual session on Tuesday, and the Republicans are completely in control. But that doesn't mean GOP leaders have agreed on priorities or agendas. To help you sort through the key issues, we bring you "For A Better Florida," the Tampa Bay Times preview of the session. Published every year since 1951, it presents news articles and opinions intended to stimulate debate over some of the most important issues facing our state.
