LeRoy Collins Institute Seeks Citizen Involvement in CRC

October 27th, 2015 by Mike Vasilinda

Every twenty years, Florida’s Constitution gets the once over for change from a panel appointed by the state’s leaders. It’s only happened twice before and the third time begins next year. Today the LeRoy Collins Institute launched an iniatitive to get average Floridians involved in the process. Carol Weissert of the Institute and a coalition of 18 groups say they hope to double the number of suggestions the Commission gets.

 

“In 1997-98 average citizens submitted 200 suggestions to the CRC. We’re hoping to double that this time around” Weissert told reporters.

LeRoy Collins served as Governor from 1955 through 1960 and is credited with modernizing state politics. He was the first Constitutional Revision Commission Chairman in 1978.
