TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Measures that would have offered expansive property tax relief, repealed Florida's ban on public funding for religious organizations and set new limits on abortion rights are among eight proposed state constitutional amendments that have fallen short of the required 60 percent approval.
Other high-profile proposals that would have capped the growth of state revenue and give the Legislature greater control over Florida's court system also missed the mark Tuesday.
So did another proposal that would have prohibited the state from requiring people to obtain health insurance.
Three amendments barely had the necessary 60 percent approval with 6 percent of the precincts yet to report. All of the amendments were placed on the ballot by the Republican-controlled Legislature.
