State to tell court to drop super-exemption amendment

As of now, there still exists the prospect of dualing property tax amendments on the Jan. 29 ballot with the super exemption still before the Florida Supreme Court and another one heading to the ballot from legislators on Monday.

But Gov. Charlie Crist said Tuesday morning that the appeal before the state Supreme Court will be dropped. He has directed the Department of State to drop the super-exemption amendment, passed by lawmakers in June and thrown off the ballot because of misleading language, because the amendment passed on Monday would be at cross purposes.
