Florida League of Cities Opposes the “Energy Choice” Amendment
The Florida League of Cities, Inc. (the “League”) is a voluntary organization whose membership consists of over 400 municipalities and other units of government, which render municipal services in Florida. Under its charter, the League’s purpose is to work for the general improvement of municipal government and its efficient administration, and to represent its members before various legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government on issues pertaining to the general and fiscal welfare of its members. The League is the united voice for Florida’s municipal governments and exists to serve the needs of Florida’s cities and promote local self-government and home rule. The proposed amendment will negatively affect the interests of municipalities throughout Florida. It will drastically reduce revenues, diminish home rule power, and impair existing contracts.
