Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently appointed 14 members to the Florida Constitution Revision Commission (CRC).
The commission, which will have a total 37 members, comes together every 20 years to review and propose changes to the Florida Constitution. Florida residents then vote on any changes.

Jordan Foundation; Fred Karlinsky, co-chair of Greenberg Traurig’s Insurance Regulatory and Transactions Practice Group; Belinda Keiser, vice chancellor of Keiser University; Frank Kruppenbacher, chairman for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority; Gary Lester, vice president of the Villages for Community Relations; Jimmy Patronis, commissioner on the Florida Public Service Commission; Pam Stewart, commissioner at the Florida Department of Education; and Nicole Washington, state policy consultant for the Lumina Foundation.
"These members stood out as exemplary choices for this historic commission whose diverse backgrounds and experience in education, business and policy will ensure we continue to champion policies that make Florida the best place for families for generations to come," Scott said.
