Description

This is an archive of the website of the Florida Constitution Revision Commission which met in 1997 and 1998. The following is a compilation of documents tracing the chronological development of Florida's Constitutions. It includes copies of each of Florida's six constitutions as they existed upon ratification; each proposed amendment whether presented by legislative resolution revision commission or initiative; and Supreme Court decisions affecting ballot position. The Table of Contents contains reference to the constitutional articles and sections affected by the proposed amendments as well as the disposition of each and is intended to be used as a research tool to assist in the location of the primary sources which comprise the history of Florida's organic law. Also included when available are cites to contemporary analyses of the various proposals prepared by the Public Administration Clearing Service of the University of Florida as part of their Civic Information Series to educate voters on the proposed changes. Jo Dowling the former Assistant Librarian of the Florida Supreme Court compiled the documents. Florida State University College of Law and the College of Law Library created the website to provide Internet access.
