CRC Commissioners Sponsor Public Proposals and Ideas Regarding the Florida Constitution

October 6 officially adopted as the public proposal filing deadline

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, the Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) held the first of two full Commission meetings in which Commissioners may directly sponsor public proposals through the CRC process. During the meeting, Commissioners officially adopted October 6 as the deadline for Floridians to submit public proposals. Several CRC Commissioners have also created their own proposals that were inspired by ideas submitted by Floridians.

CRC Chairman Carlos Beruff, said, “We are very grateful to the thousands of Floridians who have participated in the CRC process either by attending our public hearings or submitting their own proposed changes to the Florida Constitution. As we review the more than 1,400 public proposals and thousands of comments and emails we have received, it is apparent that Floridians share many similar interests and ideas. In addition to directly sponsoring public proposals, many Commissioners are creating their own proposals inspired by public input and combine similar ideas into one proposal to ensure Floridians’ voices are heard. We encourage all interested Floridians who have not yet submitted their proposed changes to the Florida Constitution to send them in by the October 6 deadline.”

The next opportunity for CRC Commissioners to directly sponsor public proposals will be on October 17 during a meeting of the full Commission. A summary of public proposals directly sponsored by Commissioners, and proposals created by Commissioners that were inspired by public input, to date is provided below:

ABOUT THE FLORIDA CONSTITUTION REVISION COMMISSION (CRC)

Once every 20 years, Florida's Constitution provides for the creation of a 37-member revision commission for the purpose of reviewing Florida's Constitution and proposing changes for voter consideration. The Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) meets for approximately one year, traveling the State of Florida, identifying issues, performing research and possibly recommending changes to the Constitution. Any amendments proposed by the CRC would be placed on the 2018 General Election ballot. For additional information, visit flcrc.gov.
