CRC Proposes Two Publicly Suggested Constitutional Amendments

October 2nd, 2017 by Jake Stofan
The 37 member Constitution Revision Commission met at the State Capitol this morning.
The Commission met for only eight minutes, during which it filed two proposed amendments suggested by members of the public.
One would end a proposed high speed railway in the state.
The other would allow voters of any affiliation to vote in party primaries if no candidate from another major political party is running.
Despite more than 1,400 proposals from the public the Commission has only filed 10.
Commissioner Chris Smith noted in the meeting a number of amendments filed by commissioners are combinations of public proposals.
“So just because we only took up two today, as commissioners a lot of the things we’re filing, especially the one Senator Joyner and I filed is the essence of the hard working and the intellect of Floridians,” said Smith.
During the meeting the commission also voted to extend the date for public proposals can be submitted until October 5th.
