Hometown Democracy Amendment

A 66-word sentence is pitting environmentalists and preservationists against developers and business groups. What makes this sentence so contentious is that it would give voters the final say in any changes to local land use plans. On Florida Matters, we look at the so called “Hometown Democracy” amendment. What is it? What does it mean? Why is the political debate surrounding it already so intense?
