Columnist Paula Dockery writes: “The Constitution Revision Commission is a big deal and voters should pay attention. This group of unelected appointees will have the power to put constitutional changes directly on the ballot. . . . The Partnership for Revising Florida’s Constitution was formed to help Floridians understand the process. Its public awareness campaign includes a citizens’ guide, a website and social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook. Citizens need to get engaged and participate. They could influence who is appointed or suggest what topics the CRC should discuss. . . . If a proposal makes it to the ballot, it’s important to be informed about what it really does. . . . Fortunately, voters have the final say.”
