The Florida Chamber has long opposed placing issues onto the Florida constitution that can be solved through the legislative process. While we recognize that sometimes constitutional amendments are necessary to preserve the integrity of Florida’s political system, they should —as with the U.S. Constitution — be considered only under “great and extraordinary occasions.” But while our nation’s constitution only holds 27 amendments, since 1970, Florida’s constitution has been amended more than 120 times.
