      Be VERY careful on how you vote for these. Amendments aren’t easy to correct when you discover the results aren’t what was promised on slick tv ads.

      I’m not a fan of this style of lawmaking, the legislature should be the primary agent for that.

        Anyone interested in joining me to get an amendment proposal on the next ballot?

        Constitutional Amendment - "Proposing an Amendment to eliminate placing Constitutional Amendments on the FL ballot, requiring elected legislators to take responsible positions and vote on issues rather than burdening voters. If not approved, all members of FL government would receive an immediate 50% paycut."

          I would support this platform. I would also support increasing the threshold to a 2/3rds majority to pass.
