HOT TOPICS LUNCHEON


Decision 2014:

Amendments to the Florida Constitution


Are you aware that there are three proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution that will appear on the November ballot? League members helped collect signatures to put Amendment 1 on the ballot. If approved by voters, it would dedicate funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands. Amendment 2 would give Florida residents the right to marchanges to the Florida Constitution and get your questions answeredijuana for treatment of certain medical diseases and conditions. Placed on the ballot by vote of the Florida Legislature, Amendment 3 would allow for the prospective appointment of judges by an outgoing governor.

If you want to find out more, come to the Hot Topics Luncheon on August 27 where we will present Decision 2014, a power point presentation developed by the League of Women Voters of Florida. The presentation is designed to be used by local Leagues to educate voters about the amendments and includes the official ballot language, background information concerning the current law or Constitutional requirements, pros and cons concerning each amendment, and information concerning support or opposition. In short, everything you will need to know to cast an informed vote on November 4!

Please join us in learning about these proposed changes to the Florida Constitution and get your questions answered.
