Florida Amendment 8: Religious Freedom
Take a closer look at the proposed amendment to the Florida Constitution before you vote,
Amendment 8: Religious Freedom
This amendment repeals a provision in the state Constitution that bans taxpayer funding of religious institutions. If passed, the measure would enable the state to provide financial support to religious schools and institutions.
Opponents, including the League of Women Voters of Florida, say the amendment erodes the separation of church and state and takes away from public education.
Supporters say the measure would enable the state to provide funding for programs that are considered valuable public services.
