TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford has announced that the House will resume publishing "The Florida Handbook" after printing of the publication stopped in 2012.

The book is a guide to state government and Florida history. Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, called it the "most well-known chronicle of trends, history and facts in the Sunshine State." Former editor Joan Morris referred to it as the textbook on Florida politics and history.

The Florida Handbook was first published in 1947. A free version went live online at this week. This edition will be the 34th version.

The Florida Handbook can also be ordered on CD for $3 at the Office of the Clerk.
