Statements from the Florida: 2010 Amendment 4's race

"Many of the companies bankrolling the ad campaign against Amendment 4 are recipients of a congressional bailout, in the form of humongous tax refunds earlier this year."

Says PolitiFact says Amendment 4 "will force counties and cities across Florida to raise taxes and fees."

"Amendment 4 will reduce Florida’s economic output by $34 billion annually."

St. Pete Beach's experiences are a "fair example" of what could happen if Amendment 4 passes.

Because of a local version of Amendment 4, "the taxpayers of St. Pete Beach have had to pay hundreds of thousands in legal bills."

St. Pete Beach's local version of Amendment 4 resulted in "seemingly endless lawsuits (that) decimated the city's legal budget and forced the city to raise the property tax rate."
