Legislative Session Makes Strange Bedfellows


Ever wonder where 160 legislators live when they come to Tallahassee for legislative session each year? While some find apartments to rent and others bring RVs to a local campground, many of them actually bunk up together and become roommates.

Reps. Jose “Pepi” Diaz, Jose Oliva, Ray Rodrigues and Sen. Frank Artiles rent a four-bedroom home within walking distance to the capitol. How do four grown, married men adapt to living together during the politically tense 60-day session?

“Some of the most funny and memorable experiences of my legislative career … I wouldn’t change it for anything,” said Diaz.
