Florida local measures mostly approved
Florida: Results posted for the January 31, 2012 election in Florida show that of the twenty-four measures listed eighteen of them were approved by voters. The two controversial slot questions in Gadsden County and Washington County both got approved but if the two facilities listed will actually get slot machines installed is a question that will likely be headed to court. Five of the measures dealt with exempting new businesses from paying property taxes, all five of those measures were approved. In Miami, two charter amendments had been hotly debated and only one was approved, the one extending the time period to circulate petitions for potential ballot measures. Other measures included tax increases, a bond and several charter amendments.
The next local election will be on February 7, 2012 in the state of Missouri.
