C.O.R.E. website set to launch

Tuesday, September 26, 2017   (0 Comments)

On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, Representatives of Florida’s constitutionally-mandated offices, including Sheriff, Clerk of Court, Tax Collector and Property Appraiser, will announce the launch of C.O.R.E., a united body promoting the importance of the vicennieal revision process and serving as expert resources on role-related matters. The C.O.R.E. website features a variety of educational resources including information about Florida’s Constitution, the CRC, and the important role of constitutional officers. Speaker requests for civic, community or school groups may be submitted through the website.

 

The Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) convenes every 20 years to review the Florida Constitution, accept proposals from the public and place them on the November ballot for voter consideration. A proposal becomes law if it receives 60 percent voter approval. The CRC is composed of 37 commissioners: The Governor appoints 15 members, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Senate President each pick nine members, three members are chosen by the Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court, and the Florida Attorney General is a member as well.
