TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Supreme Court has received a challenge to a fifth proposed constitutional amendment.
The 1st District Court of Appeal, without ruling Tuesday, forwarded an appeal of a Tallahassee judge's decision to remove Amendment 9 from the Nov. 2 ballot.
It would prohibit a state health care plan similar to President Barack Obama's national program.
The appeal court previously took the same action on Amendment 3, a property tax relief measure, and Amendment 7 on redistricting.
The high court also has agreed to rule directly on a challenge to Amendments 5 and 6, both also involving redistricting.
A challenge to Amendment 8, which would loosen class size limits, is pending in Circuit Court in Tallahassee.
