Florida Taxing Boards Amendment did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in Florida as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The proposed measure called for the creation of Section 28 of Article X of the Florida Constitution, which would require that members of governing boards that have the authority to adopt millage rates be subject to election.[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 was sponsored by Rep. Carl Domino. "It's something called 'no taxation without representation," said Domino during a House Government Affairs Committee meeting.[2]


Opponents argued that the districts were created specifically to avoid "electoral politics." Audobon of Florida executive director Eric Draper said,"You will change fundamentally how these water management districts operate."[2]
