Voter Guide on 2018 Florida Amendment Seven: Death Benefits for first responders, raising college tuition

Ahead of the general election, former U.S. Senate candidate Alex Snitker broke down the Florida amendments on the 2018 ballot for Florida Daily. Snitker then spoke with Dispatch Radio about the amendments.

UPDATE: All of the Florida Amendments passed except for Amendment One – more HERE

Check out the full audio below.

Here’s his remarks on Amendment Seven:

Amendment 7 (First Responder and Military Member Survivor Benefits; Public Colleges and Universities)-NO

Placed on the ballot by the Constitution Revision Commission.

Amendment 7 bundles three issues into one amendment. The first issue would provide a constitutional requirement for governments to pay death benefits when first responders they employ or members of the military are killed in the course of their duties. Florida statutes already provide death benefits so this does not need to be in the Florida Constitution. The issues dealing with the structure of the College Board of Trustees and its ability to raise college tuitions are alright but this is the problem of bundling issues in one amendment. Frankly, all of these issues should be decided by stand-alone amendments.
