Constitution Revision Commission Holds Public Hearings

By: Christopher Emmanuel

 

 

The 2017-2018 Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) will hold statewide public hearings to gather input from citizens. The CRC has the power to review the Florida Constitution and place proposed amendments directly on the ballot for voter approval. Florida is the only state that allows its constitution to be revisited and changed through this regularly scheduled process. Public participation is vital to the Commission’s success. Watch the video above to from hear a brief message from Christopher Emmanuel, Director of Infrastructure & Governance Policy at the Florida Chamber of Commerce, about the importance of the CRC’s role.
