TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida voters are getting a chance to give tax relief to first-time home buyers, businesses and second-home owners as well as put a stricter cap on state revenue growth.

Amendments 3 and 4 are among six amendments dealing with taxes and government finance on the Nov. 6 ballot.

They were put there by the Republican-led Florida Legislature controlled and would advance the GOP's low-tax, small-government agenda.

Amendment 3 caps the growth of state revenue. Amendment 4 gives property tax breaks to businesses, snowbirds and others who don't have a homestead exemption.

The amendments have drawn support from businesses interests and opposition from local officials, liberal-leaning groups and others who say they will unfairly cut government revenue. All amendments require at least 60 percent approval at the polls.
