The Constitution Revision Commission convenes every 20 years to review Florida’s Constitution and propose potential changes to be approved by Florida voters. It is one of five ways that Floridians can amend the state constitution. Of the 37 members of the Constitution Revision Commission, the Governor appoints 15, the Senate President appoints 9, the House Speaker appoints 9, and the Supreme Court Chief Justice appoints 3. The Attorney General is automatically appointed. The Governor selects one of the 37 members to serve as chair.






“The Constitution of the State of Florida as revised in 1968 consisted of certain revised articles as proposed by three joint resolutions which were adopted during the special session of June 24-July 3, 1968, and ratified by the electorate on November 5, 1968, together with one article carried forward from the Constitution of 1885, as amended. The articles proposed in House Joint Resolution 1-2X constituted the entire revised constitution with the exception of Articles V, VI, and VIII. Senate Joint Resolution 4-2X proposed Article VI, relating to suffrage and elections. Senate Joint Resolution 5-2X proposed a new Article VIII, relating to local government. Article V, relating to the judiciary, was carried forward from the Constitution of 1885, as amended.”
