Every 20 years Florida engages in a unique process and convenes a Commission with the authority to propose changes to the Constitution. These appointments to the 37-member body and its work product can dramatically change Florida law and policy. Most people think of "medical" marijuana, solar energy and "pregnant pigs" as topics included in Constitutional amendments, but increasingly environmental and water issues are on the forefront of potential amendments that circumvent the legislative process.
With over 30 years of experience in environmental and administrative law in Florida, including participation in the legislative process, rulemaking and litigation, Frank Matthews is a leading expert in his field. On Friday, September 23rd, he will discuss the process and the potential, critical issues that will be placed on the November 2018 ballot.
