Voter Guide on 2018 Florida Amendment 11: Removal of obsolete language

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.

Check out the full audio below.

Here’s his remarks on Amendment Eleven:

Amendment 11 (Removal of Obsolete Language)-YES

Placed on the ballot by the Constitution Revision Commission.

Amendment 11 removes obsolete language in the Florida Constitution. Amendment 11 would remove language dealing with an amendment from the 1920s that prohibited Asians from owning property in Florida.  This language was passed in response to the influx of Chinese and Japanese coming to America around the turn of 20th century.  Congress has since repealed federal laws prohibiting Asians from becoming citizens and this language is no longer needed in our state Constitution. Amendment 11 also removes left over language in the state Constitution on taxpayer funded high-speed rail which was repealed by voters in 2004. Amendment 11 also removes language which prohibited the Legislature from reducing sentencing guidelines for those convicted before it passed legislation reducing the sentences for certain crimes.
