Florida Constitutional Revision Commission 2018 schedule has been released


Tallahassee Fla – The Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) has announced its second statewide tour of public hearings to be held in 2018.

CRC Chairman Carlos Beruff, said, “As promised, the Constitution Revision Commission will be hitting the road again in 2018 to hold its second statewide tour of public hearings. This is a public driven process and upcoming public hearings will allow Floridians the opportunity to shape proposed constitutional revisions before they are placed on the ballot. We are noticing these public hearings months in advance to ensure Floridians are aware of these opportunities and can make the necessary arrangements to attend.”

Once every 20 years, Florida’s Constitution provides for the creation of a 37-memberFlorida_state_flag revision commission for the purpose of reviewing Florida’s Constitution and proposing changes for voter consideration. The Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) meets for approximately one year, traveling the State of Florida, identifying issues, performing research and possibly recommending changes to the Constitution. Any amendments proposed by the CRC would be placed on the 2018 General Election ballot.

The dates, times and locations for confirmed public hearings are outlined below. All public hearings are noticed from 1:00-7:00 p.m. local time. Floridians who fill out an appearance form by 7:00 p.m. local time will be given an opportunity to speak before the Commission.
