Hometown Democracy Amendment Fails in Florida

ACCE Webmaster on Thursday, February 14, 2008 at 1:07:42 am

Back in November the Policy Clearinghouse alerted you about a major constitutional amendment proposal in Florida called Hometown Democracy.  The Hometown Democracy amendment would have divested land use decision making from elected officials and planning commissions by making citizens vote on potentially hundreds of zoning decisions every year.  (Check out the Land Use page on the left to read the full article)

After coming up over 50,000 petition signatures short of the 611,009 necessary by Feb. 1, the Hometown Democracy amendment will not be on the ballot this November. 

This is a major victory for the Florida Chamber and dozens of other chambers in the sunshine state that opposed the amendment.   Click HERE to read an article about the chamber's victory in opposing the Hometown Democracy amendment.
