Meeting at the Dale Mabry Campus of Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, the 2017-2018 Florida Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) met for more than four hours last Wednesday, an event attended by approximately 400 Floridians. The association would like to thank the Honorable Ken Burke, CPA (Pinellas), Chair of the Forerunners Courageous Committee, the Honorable Paula S. O’Neil, Ph.D. (Pasco), and the Honorable Pat Frank (Hillsborough) for attending the hearing. The association would also like to thank Clerk Frank for speaking during Wednesday’s hearing. Clerk Frank’s remarks may be viewed via this link for the May 17 hearing, Tampa, beginning at about the 0:27:10 mark. As a reminder, full videos of all hearings held thus far are available via The Florida Channel’s video library dedicated to the CRC.

 

Prior to Wednesday’s hearing, the CRC Rules Working Group also met to consider the CRC’s draft rules, which will govern the CRC when it begins developing proposed changes to the state’s Constitution. This work group will meet again to continue its discussion of the draft rules.

Currently, there are no future CRC meetings or hearings scheduled; however, membership will be notified when any new events are scheduled. 

 

In addition, information continues to be added to the CRC’s official website, which may be visited at: http://www.flcrc.gov/. Clerks and Comptrollers can sign up to receive press releases and publications directly from the CRC by creating an account via the website and opting to track these from the CRC Media page.
