More on Florida Prop 4
Florida’s Hometown Democracy proposal has been a reoccurring topic on this blog for several years now. I’ve discussed this issue at chamber meetings across the country and it invariably draws a lot of head scratching and some perplexed questions. They generally sounds like: “How could voters possibly be asked to make every land use decision?”
I can’t answer that question, but the issue does perfectly illustrate the absolute mandate chambers of commerce have for involvement in public policy. If state and local chambers aren’t mobilized to fight against benignly named but economically devastating proposals like Hometown Democracy, who will?
Read what the Orlando Sentinel editorial board had to say about Prop 4 - What we think: No on Amendment 4, Hometown Democracy' costly, unwieldy and unwarranted.
