Just in case you were wondering, proposed Amendment 4 to the Florida Constitution is a Really Bad Idea.
Have a look at this analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Florida’s “Amendment 4” Would Cause Tax Rate Increases and Deep Local Service Cuts, Likely Harming the State’s Economy.
Vote No on 4 — in fact, if you don’t want the details, just vote NO on all the proposed constitutional amendments this year.
If, on the other hand, you’d like some nuance when looking at what the Legislature has wrought, please see my analysis of the 2012 Florida Constitutional Amendments. The bottom line is you should vote No on all of them except 11 & 12. I can understand why someone would vote for 2 & 9, but I’m not sure you should encourage this pandering tendency of the legislature.
