A panel of 37 people appointed to review and recommend changes to the Florida Constitution every 20 years is beginning to take shape.
Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Jorge Labarga announced his three appointments to this commission as did Florida Senate President Joe Negron, who appointed nine members. The governor and speaker of the house are required to make their appointments this month.
The 2017-2018 Constitution Revision Commission will be the third of its kind in state history. Citizens are encouraged to stay involved by attending public hearings and, ultimately, voting on the proposals put forth by the commission.
