State Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna) has filed a resolution in the Florida House of Representatives (HR 9003) commending Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston for his "outstanding athletic accomplishments." The resolution cites a number of achievements that include winning the Heisman trophy, leading his team to an undefeated season, and winning the BCS national title.
Meantime, Rep. Jimmy Patronis (R-Panama City) has filed a house resolution of his own (HR 9001) that congratulates the entire team on a "remarkable undefeated season and national title victory."
Thus far neither measure has a co-sponsor or companion resolution in the Florida Senate. Both Coley and Patronis are graduates of Florida State University.
At the federal level there is no word on whether U.S. Representative Corrine Brown (D-Jacksonville) plans to "gradulate" the Seminoles on the 2013 national title.
