    AMENDMENT 1: Limitation on the Assessment of Real Property Used for Residential Purposes Originator: Florida Legislature

    Ballot Summary: “Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution, effective January 1, 2023, to authorize the Legislature, by general law, to prohibit the consideration of any change or improvement made to real property used for residential purposes to improve the property’s resistance to flood damage in determining the assessed value of such property for ad valorem taxation purposes.”

    Overview: Many home improvement projects ultimately increase the assessed value of a home, which means the homeowners pay higher property taxes. This amendment would allow the Florida Legislature to pass laws that would make improvements intended to protect homes from flood damage exempt from higher assessments. The amendment is in response to the threat to Florida homes from rising sea levels. 

    AMENDMENT 2: Abolishing the Constitution Revision Commission. Originator: Florida Legislature

    Ballot Summary: “Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to abolish the Constitution Revision Commission, which meets at 20-year intervals and is scheduled to next convene in 2037, as a method of submitting proposed amendments or revisions to the State Constitution to electors of the state for approval. This amendment does not affect the ability to revise or amend the State Constitution through citizen initiative, constitutional convention, the Taxation and Budget Reform Commission, or legislative joint resolution.”

    Overview: An amendment to Florida’s Constitution can get on the ballot several ways, including through a vote by the Legislature, a citizen-led petition drive, constitutional convention, the Taxation and Budget Reform Commission and the Florida Constitution Revision Commission (CRC), which convenes every 20 years and whose 37 members are appointed by the governor, legislative leaders and the chief justice of the Florida Supreme court. ...

    Following landslide victory in Arlington County, labor and trades workers in Alexandria vote to unionize with AFSCME
    The victory for City of Alexandria workers comes just months after labor and trades workers in Arlington County won their union by a 64-3 vote.


    Alexandria – Two years after overturning a 44-year-old state law banning public sector collective bargaining, workers in Virginia are organizing in droves. In July, 343 service and labor trades workers in Arlington County won their union election overwhelmingly, and now 191 public sector workers in the City of Alexandria Labor and Trades Bargaining Unit just made history by doing the same.

    Determined to advocate for better pay and benefits like healthcare and retirement, workers chose to come together to have their voices respected in the workplace. In a union election held via mail ballot from September 2 through September 29, City of Alexandria workers voted 96% in favor of selecting the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) District Council 20 Local 3001 as their union representative.

    For Mark Johnson, a City of Alexandria heavy equipment operator, the victory comes as no surprise. “We came together and stood strong to secure this historic victory,” said Johnson. “It feels good to be united with my co-workers in wanting to improve our work and services.”

    “We all knew what was at stake and we came through to win a voice at the table.” said Jason Hitt, a City building engineer. “We're excited to bargain a contract that represents the best interests of our communities and families – the way it should be.”

     City of Alexandria workers hope that their union win will continue a wave of public sector organizing that began when Arlington County unionized in the summer.
