Amendments
The Libertarian Party of Florida recommends a vote NO on Amendment One. Amendment One adds to the Florida state constitution the right to own or lease solar energy equipment for personal use. You already have this right; it does not need to be added to the constitution. The amendment also allows state or local governments from subsidizing its production by citizens who do not produce solar energy. The amendment would essentially allow the rejection of Net Metering, the process where homeowners are compensated for the excess solar they are forced to give to the public utility.
 
The Libertarian Party of Florida recommends a vote YES on Amendment Two. Amendment Two legalizes medical marijuana for individuals with specific debilitating diseases or conditions as determined by a licensed state physician.
 
The Libertarian Party of Florida takes no position on Amendment 3. Amendment Three provides property tax exemptions to first responders who have been permanently disabled in the line of duty.
 
The Libertarian Party of Florida takes no position on Amendment 5. Amendment Five supports property tax exemptions to eligible senior citizens. The amendment would allow home values to remain fixed after application for the exemption, even if the value later exceeds the designated threshold.
