⚡️In 2014, 75% of Floridians voted OVERWHELMINGLY to pass Amendment 1, AKA the FL Water & Land Conservation Initiative, a state constitutional amendment to allot a projected $21 billion over the 20 years of the measure to buy & preserve land. They approved this:
▶️75% of the voters is 4.2 million people.
▶️When 75% of #Florida voters voted to approve Amendment 1 to the Florida Constitution, they approved "the largest land conservation measure ever approved in a single state."
ℹ️The exact amount of money is “projected” because—according to the amendment that was passed—it was to come from 33% of Florida’s existing excise tax. An Excise tax is a “documentary stamp tax” paid when real estate is sold, typically 70 cents per $100 paid for the property.
