This chapter describes the organization and early tasks of the Constitution Revision Commission: what principles were emphasized, what rules governed, the principal constitutional issues to be addressed, and the internal politics of the CRC. It also introduces and discusses several key members of the CRC, including its chair, lawyer Chesterfield Smith; Judge Hugh Taylor; Senator Beth Johnson; Richard Pettigrew; and Robert Ervin. At the same time, reapportionment lawsuits continued, and Disney announced plans for a new theme park in Florida.
