There are Tallahassee residents are doing their homework on Florida's amendments. Tuesday night a non profit organization called Village Square hosted "Constitutional Amendments 101." The event featured a panel of experts on all the amendments--allowing a chance for voters to become informed.
The panel included Florida Taxation and Budget Reform, Florida Tax Watch, a representative for and against Amendment 2. Bill Law, President of Tallahassee Community College gave some insight into Amendment 8 addressing the local tax option for community colleges. He said, "Village Square is a group that's been put together here in Tallahassee and it is just for these purposes, a chance for the community to come together, talk about hard issues, but do it in a respectful way where we can get to the issues rather than the personalities."
Participants Tuesday night were encouraged to bring laptops so they could fact check the discussion. If you would like to learn more on the amendments--be sure to watch our series "Making Law" starting on on Wednesday on Eyewitness News at 11:00 p.m.
