2020 florida amendments guide

It is a tax break. Background This amendment was also placed on the ballot by the Florida Legislature. It could save many homeowners a few hundred dollars and potentially encourage renters to buy homes. State law requires that the title of an amendment on the ballot be no more than 15 words long and the summary description of it not exceed 75 words. To amend the Florida Constitution, the measure must be approved by a 60 percent majority during the election. It also increased the age for judges to retire to 75 and disallows judges from deferring to government agencies to interpret the law. Such restrictions have typically been found in the South and date to the post-Civil War era. Wording on the ballot This amendment ensures that Florida voters shall have the exclusive right to decide whether to authorize casino gambling by requiring that in order for casino gambling to be authorized under Florida law, it must be approved by Florida voters pursuant to Article XI, Section 3 of the Florida Constitution. The amendment would not apply to those convicted of murder or sexual offenses, who would continue to be permanently banned from voting unless the Governor and Cabinet vote to restore their voting rights on a case-by-case basis. The measure increases the rights of victims. Petitions are due by February 1 of the year of the election. Wording on the ballot Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to permanently retain provisions currently in effect, which limit property tax assessment increases on specified non-homestead real property, except for school district taxes, to 10 percent each year. Additional efforts by these states were instituted against the Civil Rights Movement of the s. It would appear then that the measure is designed to weaken localities by state interests. It also limits the use of vaping in indoor workplaces. The fight continues on both sides. Creates office of domestic security and counterterrorism within department of law enforcement. Removes obsolete language repealed by voters. In plain English Restores the right to vote for most people with prior felony convictions once they finish their sentences. For instance, voters in local communities would be limited in their ability to vote for or against county officers. Most of the measures are redundant in that they already exist. Perhaps the authority to pass such measures should remain with the Florida Legislature, rather than through the citizenry. In , Florida Amendment 3, which passed, raised the requirement for approving a constitutional amendment. The first is for the individual or group seeking to propose an amendment to register with the Florida Division of Elections as a political committee. Over the previous decade, the Florida State Legislature referred 38 proposed amendments to the ballot, of which 25 were approved by voters. It requires the boards for universities to obtain a supermajority of their members in order raise student fees. The precise effect of this amendment on state and local government costs cannot be determined, but the operation of current voter registration laws, combined with an increased number of felons registering to vote, will produce higher overall costs relative to the processes in place today. There is the need to restrict the lobbying efforts of state employees, public officials, judges, former elected officials, and others. Establishes existing state college system as constitutional entity; provides governance structure. The Florida Legislature has tried often to pass gambling bills but has been unable to do so. Requires supermajority votes by university trustees and state university system board of governors to raise or impose all legislatively authorized fees if law requires approval by those bodies. If approved, the amendment removes the scheduled repeal of such provisions in and shall take effect January 1, In plain English There is an existing cap on non-homestead property assessments. Civic reformers note that judges and courts should be free to defer to public agencies. It will make permanent limits on property assessments and taxes, and therefore reduce tax bills. Wording on the ballot Prohibits the legislature from imposing, authorizing, or raising a state tax or fee except through legislation approved by a two-thirds vote of each house of the legislature in a bill containing no other subject. The proposed amendment must then be submitted to the Division of Elections for review to determine if it is written in the proper legal format. Typically, many more initiatives are filed than end up being on the ballot, as some are usually either withdrawn or fail to get the required number of signatures, whiles others are found by the courts to be unconstitutional. Amendment 2 Limitations on Property Tax Assessments. The issue has been a hot potato in Florida — in , there were efforts to re-enact such voting prohibitions. The law was named for a California college student named Marsy Nicholas who was murdered in Some critics are concerned that the Constitutional Revision Commission lumped three different issues into one amendment. It removes the requirement that suspects in crimes be prosecuted under the provisions of the law, even if those laws have been changed. In plain English Requires the state to pay death benefits to families of first responders and military personnel. Government officials and most especially former officials should be able to function as lobbyists under existing laws and restrictions. Some individuals feel that former felons have forfeited their right to vote, while others believe the governor and Cabinet should determine who can have their right to vote restored. Casino games and slots are restricted to tribal facilities in most of the state with some exceptions in Miami-Dade and Broward County. The number of signatures required for an amendment to be placed on the ballot is at least eight percent of votes cast in the previous presidential election. Local governments in Florida are often under-funded and rely on these types of assessments and taxes to provide public services. In plain English It requires a two-thirds vote of the Florida Legislature in order to increase taxes. The Florida Constitution provides for a process that allows individuals, the State Legislature, and a convention to propose amendments to the State Constitution. This measure would make it nearly impossible to raise taxes, revenues, or fees, thus making Florida a low tax state. It also requires a supermajority vote to increase fees at public universities. Once the petition forms are completed, they must be submitted to the Supervisor of Elections in the county where the signee resides along with a fee approximately 10 cents per signature to cover the cost of validating the signatures there is a process to request a waiver of the fee. Currently, most tax measures need only a simple majority vote to pass. The Florida Legislature would not be able to make such decisions. There are several steps required. Florida is one of only a handful of states that ban felons from voting after they completed their sentences. There are a few exceptions and a few other requirements as well. This measure would force it to be a requirement. Adds use of vapor generating electronic devices to current prohibition of tobacco smoking in enclosed indoor workplaces with exceptions; permits more restrictive local vapor ordinances. Depending on the county in which you vote, there may be additional county-wide questions on your ballot. In plain English This amendment repeals bans on aliens owning property in the state, the requirement for high-speed rail systems from the Florida Constitution, and other items. Wording on the ballot Grants mandatory payment of death benefits and waiver of certain educational expenses to qualifying survivors of certain first responders and military members who die performing official duties. This would make it permanent. Making such limits on property assessments permanent would limit funds for local governments. The definition of first responders is expanded to include EMT and paramedics, and supporters feel such death benefits should be a part of the Florida Constitution. In plain English Bans offshore drilling for oil and gas. Family members of individuals in the armed services to die in the line of duty are already compensated by the federal government. Critics also point out that the Constitutional Revision Commission has again bundled a few different issues into one amendment. Wording on the ballot Phasing out commercial dog racing in connection with wagering by Other gaming activities are not affected.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Raises mandatory retirement age of state justices and judges from 70 to 75 years; deletes authorization to complete judicial term if one-half of term has been served by retirement age. A decade ago, former governor Charlie Crist began the process to restore the right to vote, but Governor Rick Scott enacted new laws to further limit restoration of voting rights. On the other hand, the Florida State Legislature also has the power to place a measure on the ballot, but it requires a vote by 60 percent of the Legislature to do so. Why vote NO? {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}All state constitutions — like the U. In plain English Bans public officials from lobbying for money while they are in office and for a period of six years after leaving office. In plain English Citizens would get the right — through a vote — to decide whether to authorize casino gambling operations in the state. When there are complicated constitutional amendments or referenda on the ballot, the time required to vote and, consequently, the lines at the polls may be a bit longer. Amendment 3 Voter Control of Gambling in Florida. Deletes provision that amendment of a criminal statute will not affect prosecution or penalties for a crime committed before the amendment; retains current provision allowing prosecution of a crime committed before the repeal of a criminal statute. As such, in the face of serious challenges it may be necessary to amend the constitution. Wording on the ballot The amendment restores the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation. This is the process that permits individuals or groups to get an amendment or referendum placed on the ballot by securing enough voter signatures beforehand. The measure also raises the mandatory age of retirement for state judges from 70 to 75 and disallows courts from deferring to government agencies — typically the individuals with expertise on the issue and charged with implementing the policy — when interpreting certain laws. Affects articles X and XI. Constitution — are meant to be living documents. Wording on the ballot Removes discriminatory language related to real property rights. Wording on the ballot Expands current restrictions on lobbying for compensation by former public officers; creates restrictions on lobbying for compensation by serving public officers and former justices and judges; provides exceptions; prohibits abuse of a public position by public officers and employees to obtain a personal benefit. This proposal does not authorize a state tax or fee otherwise prohibited by the Constitution and does not apply to fees or taxes imposed or authorized to be imposed by a county, municipality, school board, or special district. Background This amendment was put on the ballot by the Florida Legislature by a vote in The amendment shall take effect January 1, Why vote YES? Local governments, which rely on property taxes to generate revenues to fund public services would lose needed funds. Once the petition signatures are obtained, they are good for four years from the date signed. The Florida Legislature has been guilty of such approaches in previous years. A number of environmental, tourism, and citizen groups have been concerned about the devastating impact to the state if there were additional oil spills. This measure would allow citizens to vote on it and individuals opposed to gambling could vote their position.
