Former Senate President, House Speaker Dies at 84

April 30th, 2009 by flanews

The only man to serve as House Speaker and Senate President following reconstruction in Florida died Thursday. Mallory Horne passed away in Tallahassee this morning.

Horne was 84 years old. Horne is credited with fighting south Florida legislators to keep the state capitol in Tallahassee. Here is Horne in a 2001 interview talking about his time leading both chambers.

The Senate is overall a much more powerful job, in reality and in perception, but being Speaker of the House is in fact more fun, Senate is more powerful no question about it, said Horne.

Two weeks ago the state senate honored Horne for his service and named a room in the Capitol after the legislative legend.
