Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Florida Hometown Democray

High Court Clears Way for Growth-Management Amendment

The state Supreme Court appeared to clear the way Wednesday for the controversial Florida Hometown Democracy constitutional amendment to go on the 2010 election ballot. Justices, in a 4-2 decision, found unconstitutional a law that opponents have used to revoke Florida Hometown Democracy petition signatures. The ruling appeared likely to ensure that supporters of the growth-management amendment will have the required 676,811 signatures to take the issue to voters.
