Florida: Teachers’ union going to court to kick initiative off ballot

Wed, Oct 6 2010 — Source: The Miami Herald

Attorneys for a statewide teachers’ union will go before the Florida Supreme Court Wednesday in an attempt to boot from the November ballot a proposed amendment dealing with school class sizes. The decision on whether Amendment 8 can go before voters is expected to be the last before the tally of amendments that voters will have a say on is final. Several proposed initiatives have been challenged in court, but all have been either rejected or given the OK with about a month now to go before Election Day.
