Passing Florida's Amendment No 2 would make it harder to bring constitutional amendments to the ballot.
A “Yes” vote on amendment No. 1 about the Limitation on the Assessment of Real Property Used for Residential Purposes is risky for taxpayers since Florida’s home insurance situation is in shambles, but how many people making improvements to their seawalls have insurance that’s going insolvent? Hopefully not many.

The language of amendment No. 1 is too vague to go forward, so we say “no,” along with "no" to the undemocratic amendment about making it harder to bring constitutional amendments to the ballot (No. 2) and “no” to another ill-designed homestead amendment that’s supposed to incentivize housing for critical workers, but actually creates more inequity in a state on the way to being one of he worse places to buy a home.

No. 1—Limitation on the Assessment of Real Property Used for Residential Purposes: No
No. 2—Abolishing the Constitution Revision Commission: No
No. 3—Additional Homestead Property Tax Exemption for Specified Critical Public Services Workforce: No
