TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The state Supreme Court has upheld judges' rulings to remove three proposed state constitutional amendments, all offered by the Legislature, from Florida's Nov. 2 ballot.
The justices Tuesday agreed to strike amendments dealing with health care, redistricting and property tax relief.
They also turned aside challenges by state and federal lawmakers to a pair of citizen initiatives dealing with redistricting, allowing them to remain on the ballot.
Those proposals, Amendments 5 and 6, would prohibit
gerrymandering that favors incumbents or political parties when redrawing legislative and congressional districts.
