 Constitutional Amendments – 

NO. 1
Rights of Electricity Consumers Regarding Solar Energy Choice
This amendment establishes a right under Florida’s constitution for consumers to own or lease
solar equipment installed on their property to generate electricity for their own use. State and
local governments shall retain their abilities to protect consumer rights and public health,
safety and welfare, and to ensure that consumers who do not choose to install solar are not
required to subsidize the costs of backup power and electric grid access to those who do.
The amendment is not expected to result in an increase or decrease in any revenues or costs to
state and local government.


NO. 2
Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Medical Conditions
Allows medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating medical conditions as
determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients’ medical use of
marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and
distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and
caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not immunize violations of federal law or any nonmedical use, possession or production of marijuana. Increased costs from this amendment to state and local governments cannot be determined. There will be additional regulatory costs and enforcement activities associated with the production, sale, use and possession of medical marijuana. Fees may offset some of the regulatory costs. Sales tax will likely apply to most purchases, resulting in a substantial increase in state and local government revenues that cannot be determined precisely. The impact on property tax revenues cannot be determined.
