Is the $30 million stockpile for redistricting fact or fiction?

The Orlando Sentinel has written multiple times about $30 million available in the house that can be used for redistricting.

But at a recent public hearing about redistricting, State Rep. Will Weatherford denied such a stockpile of money exists.

"There is no $30 million pot of money. That doesn't exist. ... Your tax dollars are not being spent on anything like that. There is no large pot of money out there that is fighting anything."

Does the pot of money exist? Read PolitiFact to find out.
