Amendment 1

October 18, 2016

Today, Florida Council for Safe Communities Chairman John Giotis released the following statement on Amendment 1, which will appear on Florida General Election ballots:

“As Florida voters begin voting early next week and continue to vote by mail, the Florida Council for Safe Communities urges a “yes” vote on Amendment 1. Ballot initiatives can be confusing, and it is important to know the truth about their impact on our state. Amendment 1 will protect the poorest citizens in Florida from being required to subsidize the wealthiest citizens. Safeguarding our low-income neighbors while promoting expanded energy options is a win for everyone in our great state, and we hope our fellow Floridians will pass this important amendment to our state constitution.”
