Jeb Backs Amendment 3



Rumor had it the Governor might be rethinking his support of Amendment 3 in the wake of the Florida Supreme Court's ruling on vouchers. If the amendment passes, any proposed constitutional amendment  -- including one to restore school vouchers -- would require a 60-percent approval rate.

But Bush, who has consistently pushed to make the state Constitution harder to amend, isn't wavering. He told reporters Tuesday he's voting for Amendment 3, contrary to the stands of the two men vying to replace him. Both Jim Davis and Charlie Crist oppose Amendment 3.
