Florida amendment 5

My view on.

Amendment 5   Super Majority Vote Required to Impose, Authorize or Raise State Taxes or Fees.

I think I like this one….Without going into the numbers, just note that both the Florida House and Senate would require 2/3rd vote to raise taxes or fees.  It is called a Super Majority.  It also requires any new taxes or fees be on a Stand Alone bill and not attached to other bills.  (this part I really like)

A YES vote put the Super Majority vote requirement in the Constitution

A NO vote allows the Legislature to continue to approve tax increases with a simple majority vote.
