What it says: Deletes the ban on public funds going directly or indirectly to any church, sect, or religious denomination or to aid any sectarian institution.

Homestead exemption for surviving spouse of military veteran or first responder
What it says: Provides property-tax relief to the surviving spouses of soldiers or first-responders who died in the line of duty.
Supporters say: It is a way to help spouses in danger of losing their homes.
Critics say: Not much. Some say such tax breaks make Florida's system more complicated and unfair.
Tangible personal property tax exemption
What it says: Doubles to $50,000 the exemption on equipment subject to the "tangible personal property" tax paid by businesses.
Supporters say: It would take thousands of small businesses off the tax rolls.

Additional homestead exemption for low-income seniors
What it says: Allows counties and cities to in effect exempt from the property-tax rolls homes worth less than $250,000 owned by low-income seniors for more than 25 years.
Supporters say: It is a low-cost way to help low-income seniors stay in their homes.
Critics say: The requirements are so strict there aren't likely to be many who qualify.
Appointment of student body president to board of governors of the state university system
What it says: Replaces the president of the Florida Student Association with the chair of the council of state university student body presidents as the student member of the Board of Governors of the State University System.
Supporters say: It is unfair for public universities to have to pay dues to join the FSA.
Critics say: It is an unnecessary change prompted by Florida State University students, who aren¹t FSA members.
