This week, Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) Chairman Carlos Beruff held an interview with The Florida Channel to discuss the CRC’s ongoing efforts to travel the state and listen to Floridians as part of its “Floridians Speak, We Listen” tour. During the interview, Chairman Beruff spoke to the importance of engaging Floridians during this historic process, which only happens once every 20 years.
“Florida’s got this magical thing, that one person can make a difference … You don’t have to be connected, you don’t have to have finances, you can just come and talk to us and give us an idea … We’re trying to make it convenient for the average citizen to come and talk to us. To the extent possible, we want to hear everybody … The more people get involved in our democracy, the better.”
– Chairman Carlos Beruff

ABOUT THE FLORIDA CONSTITUTION REVISION COMMISSION (CRC)
Once every twenty years, Florida’s Constitution provides for the creation of a thirty-seven member revision commission for the purpose of reviewing Florida’s Constitution and proposing changes for voter consideration. The Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) meets for approximately one year, traveling the State of Florida, identifying issues, performing research, and possibly recommending changes to the Constitution. Any amendments proposed by the CRC would be placed on the 2018 General Election ballot. For additional information, visit flcrc.gov.
