Who serves on the Constitution Revision Commission?
The Governor of Florida appoints 15 members, the House Speaker and Senate President each pick nine members, three members are chosen by the Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court and the Florida Attorney General is an automatic member. The Governor selects one of the 37 members to serve as chairman.

Of course, an initiative to do just that was rejected by Florida voters in 2012.”
