Ammendment 5 Off Nov. 4 Ballot
September 3, 2008
The Florida Supreme Court ruled this afternoon to uphold the circuit court’s decision to remove Amendment 5 from the November ballot.
The courts’ ruling ends a long and arduous fight to help provide property tax relief to Floridians. The court’s main consideration for removing the amendment from the ballot was the language in the amendment’s summary which said education funding would be held harmless. According to the amendment, funding would only be held harmless for the first year and then would leave education funding in the hands of the legislature.
Stay tuned for any new developments.
