The No publicly funded lobbying

statewide ballot in Florida
as an initiated constitutional amendment
. The measure would have required that no governmental entity shall hire paid lobbyists with public funds to influence another governmental entity directly or indirectly through associations that receive public funds or with paid advertisements for said purposes. Public funds are prohibited from this use and shall be withheld from associations that act directly or indirectly to violate this subsection. For purposes of this subsection, lobbyist is defined as paid consultants or their firms who lobby political representatives on a particular issue.
The Florida Ballot initiative was the political action committee (PAC) that sponsored the initiative.
The initiative was approved by the Florida Secretary of State and was circulated. It did not make the ballot.
