Abolishing the Constitution Revision Commission 142

Currently, the Florida Constitution requires that a constitution revision commission be convened once every 20 years to examine the State Constitution and propose any amendments that it deems appropriate. However, this is often a politicized process run by members who aren’t voted on and held accountable to the public. These bills would put an end to that process. Unfortunately, these bills did not manage to pass through both chambers.

Public Records 162

The Florida Constitution guarantees every person a right to inspect or copy any public record of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government, unless such record is specifically exempt. The bill prohibits an agency that receives a public record request to inspect or copy a record from responding to such request by filing a civil action against the individual or entity making the request. While both bills managed to move through committee, they did not receive a vote on either chambers floor.
