All Florida residents who believe in the right to privacy won a significant battle in the state legislature recently.
In a 4-2 vote, the Judicial Committee of the state Constitution Revision Commission rejected a measure (Proposal 22) from Commissioner John Stemberger of Orlando that would have changed the Constitution to say people have a right to be free from governmental intrusion “with respect to privacy of information and the disclosure thereof.” That wording was an example of legislative double-talk. The measure would have increased government intrusion, not reduce it.
