2017-2018 CRC

FloridaCRCCitizensGuide 5

The 2017-2018 Constitution Revision Commission was the third of its kind in state history. The Governor, Florida Senate President, Florida Speaker of the House and Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice named 36 people to the 2017-2018 Constitution Revision Commission. The Attorney General was the 37th member. 

The commission began its work upon the conclusion of the 2017 session. The commission held public hearings throughout the state where citizens attended to share ideas and feedback on potential proposals for the ballot. After gathering public input, the commission ultimately recommended eight proposals for the 2018 ballot. With one proposal (Amendment 8) removed from the ballot by the Florida Supreme Court, seven of the CRC's proposals were ultimately placed on the ballot. Florida voters approved all seven amendments, which required at least 60 percent of the vote in order to pass.

All public hearings and CRC meetings may be accessed through a live-stream on The Florida Channel. Click here to view the video archive.
