Amendment 8 Struck From November Ballot

ORLANDO, Fla. – The League of Women Voters of Florida has released the following statement in response to the court’s decision to strike Amendment 8 from the November ballot on Monday:

“It’s a great day for Florida voters. The Constitution Revision Commission knew exactly what they were doing when they drafted Amendment 8 — grouping a controversial measure with popular ideas in an effort to hoodwink voters, then using vague and misleading language to hide that fact,” said Patricia Brigham, president of the Florida League.

“Amendment 8 would have used the feel-good language of civic education and term limits to lure voters into voting Yes, while wresting local control of schools,” Brigham continued. “We were confident that the courts would see through the charade and are thrilled that they agree.”
