(p.175) 9 A New Constitution
Making Modern Florida

The final chapter argues that the adoption of the new Constitution depended on reapportionment and that the reorganization of government, home rule, and other features of the new Constitution allowed the state to manage growth and operate efficiently. The only part of the Constitution that was not written anew in 1968 was the judicial article. It was another four years before that constitutional knot was untied and smoothed out. It took the joint efforts of cultural opposites to pull off the last element of Florida’s modern Constitution.
