The Constitution Revision Commission is heading to Melbourne Monday for a public hearing on proposed constitutional amendments it’s considering putting in front of Florida voters.

The Feb. 19 hearing will be held in the Maxwell C. King Center on Eastern Florida State College’s campus and is set to run from 1 pm to 7 pm. Free parking will be available at the lot adjacent to the center, located at 3865 N Wickham Rd.

Attendees looking to speak at the hearing must turn in an appearance card, either by printing and filling out the form available on the CRC website or by completing one of the printed copies at the event.

Speakers are called up on a first come, first served basis and all speakers who turn in their forms to event staff by 7 pm will be allowed to speak. No forms are accepted until noon on the day of the hearing.

A video of the hearing will be made available via The Florida Channel for those unable to attend.

The Melbourne hearing is the second stop on the CRC’s 2018 “Road to the Ballot” public hearing tour. The commission held a hearing last week in Ft. Lauderdale, and will follow up the Melbourne meeting with stops in Jacksonville on Feb. 20, Pensacola on Feb. 27 and St. Petersburg on March 13.

More information on the proposals being considered can be found via the CRC website.
