Florida Ballot Amendment 2on September 20, 2012 at 7:24 pm
ARTICLE VII, SECTION 6 ARTICLE XII, SECTION 32
Veterans Disabled Due to Combat Injury; Homestead Property Tax Discount
Proposing an amendment to Section 6 of Article VII and the creation of Section 32 of
Article XII of the State Constitution to expand the availability of the property
discount on the homesteads of veterans who became disabled as the result of a
combat injury to include those who were not Florida residents when they entered
the military and schedule the amendment to take effect January 1, 2013.
This ballot initiative looks like it provides a close for the veterans who were combat injured, now live in Florida, but were not Florida residents when they went into the service. So repair the problem and let these veterans have the same benefit of property tax discount as other veterans in Florida. I approve and will vote yes on this one.
