Making Modern Florida

University Press of Florida

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas 1966, the Constitution Revision Commission met in Tallahassee to hash out the final language of the new Constitution. They debated equal rights, voting rights for eighteen-year-olds, death, taxes, Florida’s cabinet system, and every other aspect of the constitution. The Governor-elect, Claude Kirk, watched from the end of Chesterfield Smith’s dais as rural Florida changed into urban Florida in the mid-1960s. This was the Commission’s final work as a group.
