CRC Submits Final Report to Florida Secretary of State
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Pursuant to Article XI, Section 2 of the Florida Constitution, the Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) today submitted its final report to the Florida Secretary of State. The final report contains eight CRC revisions that will appear as constitutional amendments on the 2018 General Election ballot for voter consideration.
CRC Chairman Carlos Beruff, said, “A diverse group of Florida leaders have done a tremendous job representing Floridians. After holding more than 15 public hearings, the most in CRC history, and reviewing thousands of public comments, we submitted a compelling set of transformational proposals that have the potential to benefit Floridians for generations to come. The CRC is giving Floridians the opportunity to vote ‘yes’ on several important issues including ethics reform in government, rights for victims of crime, prohibiting oil drilling in state waters, and necessary education reforms. I commend my fellow Commissioners for their service and we thank all Floridians who participated in this historic process.”
A copy of the final report submitted to the Florida Secretary of State is available online at flcrc.gov/Reference (Direct Link: https://bit.ly/2KPgJD0). Proposed constitutional revisions on the ballot must secure at least 60 percent voter approval to become law.
