Florida State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police Position on Constitutional Amendments

The Florida State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police, has voted to not support any constitutional ballot initiatives. The majority of the proposed amendments are bundled issues that require the voter to vote for all of the changes not just the single subject that they may be interested in supporting. Our state requires that all legislation be single subject, yet the Florida CRC bundled numerous issues in one proposal. The actual language for the changes to the constitution are 37 pages long, yet the vote sheet has them shortened to little more than a title description. Most voters will not do the research to understand the impacts their vote will make, and the Fraternal Order Of Police can not support ambiguous changes that will have a lasting and permanent effect upon the laws of Florida.

Unlike the state statutes that can be tweaked, changed *or* repealed each year during the legislative session, a constitutional amendment is permanent and should only be added *or* changed with full understanding of the impact a change would make. The unintended consequences can not be easily fixed.

The questions that we asked:

* Who wants this change?

* Why do they want this change?

* What overwhelming cause, problem *or* need does this fix and why did the legislature not create a new statute themselves?

* Is this creating a new item in the constitution *or* is it fixing existing language in the constitution?

* What is the impact of the actual language of the amendment?
