The legislators who drafted Florida’s modern Constitution in 1968 were wise enough to know that they weren’t so astute as to foresee every test of time. They made the document easier to amend than the old one, which their forerunners had refused to adapt to the 20th century. One of the reforms was the initiative process, enabling citizens to put amendments on the ballot. The Legislature also created something unique to Florida: a Constitution Revision Commission to be appointed a decade later and every 20 years subsequently.
