Lt. Governor of Florida


Florida Gov. Rick Scott is being sued over his decision to leave the post of lieutenant governor vacant for nearly ten months. A Tallahassee lobbyist and political activist is asking the Florida Supreme Court to force an appointment within 30 days.

Article-4, Section 2 of the Florida Constitution says: “There shall be a lieutenant governor, who shall perform such duties pertaining to the office of governor as shall be assigned by the governor, except when otherwise provided by law, and such other duties as may be prescribed by law.”
