Here’s What You Need to Know About the Constitution Revision Commission Appointees

By: Christopher Emmanuel

The composition of the 37-member Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) is now set.

Governor Rick Scott, Senate President Joe Negron, House Speaker Richard Corcoran and Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court Jorge Labarga have each made their appointments. Attorney General Pam Bondi is an automatic member of the commission.

First introduced in 1968, the CRC meets every 20 years to review the Florida Constitution and has the power to place proposed amendments directly on the ballot for voter approval. Florida is the only state that allows for its state constitution to be revisited and changed through this regularly scheduled process.
