Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: BALLOT LAW

, , Leave a comment

This past week brought several ballot issues to the fore. The House panel proposed in HJR1127 to limit citizen initiatives to procedural subjects, the structure of the government or of the constitution. Said differently, under this proposal, citizens would be stripped of their right to propose initiatives that fall within the province of the Legislature. At the same time, Gov. Ron DeSantis proffered his own congressional redistricting map that would increase Republican dominance to an 18-10 advantage over the 16-11 advantage under the Senate map. These are contentious times: Florida voters need to stay on high alert as to changes marginalizing their participation in election results.
