Florida Property Assessed Value Amendment did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in Florida as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposed measure prohibited increases in the assessed value of property if the fair market value of the property decreased. It would have amended Section 4 of Article VII of the Florida Constitution and create a new section in Article XII.[1]

The measure was not approved by the legislature at the end of the 2010 legislative session on Friday, April 30, 2010, thus the measure did not appear on the 2010 ballot.


The measure, sponsored by Sen. Mike Fasano, would have eliminated an "archaic rule" argued Fasano. According to Greg Giordano, Fasano's chief legislative assistant, "Senator Fasano believes that it is absurd that a person's assessed (or taxable) property value should go up while its (market) value goes down. In these tough economic times ... it is the senator's belief that people should see a break in their taxes, not some artificial increase caused by an archaic rule."[2]
