Florida Senate Bill 1164, a ballot measure that would have prevented homeowners from having to pay more in taxes during times when market values are declining, was on its way to appear on the 2010 state ballot but the bill was "indefinitely postponed."[1]

The proposed bill was a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The suggested amendment to the state constitution, specifically to Section 4 of Article VII, proposed the creation of a new section to Article XII to "prohibit increases in the assessed value of homestead property if the market value of the property decreases."[2]

The bill was submitted and filed for consideration on February 3, 2009 by Sen. Mike Fasano.
