"A report by Washington Economics Group, whose clients include businesses like Nascar, projected that automatic restoration of voting rights would lead to $365 million/year in gains for Florida's economy, from lower prison costs and increased productivity"
Amazing statistic: the recidivism rate for people who had their voting rights automatically restored under Gov. Crist is 12.4%, vs a state average of 30%.

Also noteworthy: Charles and David Koch's network has declared support for Amendment 4.
UNF poll: 71% of Florida voters support Amendment 4 restoring nonviolent felons' voting rights (the measure requires 60% approval on Nov 6 to be added to the state constitution) j.mp/2xK2KIN
