Amendment #2 on Florida’s 2012 ballot deals with veterans.

If passed, it would allow all combat-disabled veterans in the Sunshine State to have access to discounts on their property tax.

In 2010, a law was put in place that gave discounts to veterans if they lived in Florida previous to their service.

This amendment would give the benefits to all combat-disabled veterans, regardless of where they lived previously.
