New Letter to CRC Chair Blasts Grouping of Proposals

The Florida Policy Institute joined the League of Women Voters Florida and a number of other groups in urging Carlos Beruff, chair of the state Constitution Revision Commission (CRC), to unbundle the 12 revisions — initially 24 separate proposals — recommended by the CRC Style and Drafting Committee.

The letter pointed out that in 1998, during the last CRC, commissioners were provided the opportunity to take a final vote on each individual proposal before they were grouped.

One particular revision, the bundling of three education proposals, was blasted by signatories as “an attempt to expand charter schools while hiding the proposal behind civics education and school board term limits.”
