perry e._thurston_jr_web.jpgTALLAHASSEE, Fla. -A Republican legislator wants a probe into whether six legislators are flouting a state law that requires a legislator to live in their district.

Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Palm Harbor, wrote a letter Thursday to Gov. Rick Scott as well as the state's legislative leaders asking for an inquiry.

Latvala, the chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee, stated he wants a "conclusive finding'' into whether the legislators are violating the law.

A spokeswoman for Senate President Don Gaetz said he was reviewing the letter. A spokesman for House Speaker Will Weatherford said the speaker has not yet seen it.

A recent television news report reignited questions about where Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, House minority leader Perry E. Thurston, Jr. D-Fort Lauderdale and Rep. Hazelle Roger, D-Lauderdale Lakes lives.

This past spring Latvala questioned where Sachs lives, but she maintained she met residency requirements.
