Messages from the Senate
The Honorable J. Hyatt Brown, Speaker
I am directed to inform the House of Representatives that the
Senate has passed SJR 1-B as amended by the required Consti-
tutional three-fifths vote of all members elected to the Senate
and requests the concurrence of the House.
Joe Brown, Secretary

By Senator Gordon and others-

Section 6 of Article VII of the State Constitution relating to
ad valorem tax relief.
Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
That the following revision consisting of an amendment to
Section 6 of Article VII of the State Constitution is hereby
agreed to and that the revision shall be submitted to the
electors of this state for approval or rejection at a special
election to be held on March 11, 1980; provided, however, that
if such revision is not submitted to the electors at a special
election on March 11, 1980, it shall be submitted to the electors
at the next general election, and, if approved, such revision
shall take effect upon such approval and apply to the taxes
levied on the assessment rolls for the year 1980 and each year
thereafter:
ARTICLE VII
FINANCE AND TAXATION
SECTION 6. Homestead exemptions.-
(a) Every person who has the legal or equitable title to
real estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of
the owner, or another legally or naturally dependent upon
the owner, shall be exempt from taxation thereon, except
assessments for special benefits, up to the assessed valuation
of five thousand dollars, upon establishment of right thereto
in the manner prescribed by law. The real estate may be held
by legal or equitable title, by the entireties, jointly, in common,
as a condominium, or indirectly by stock ownership or member-
ship representing the owner's or member's proprietary interest
in a corporation owning a fee or a leasehold initially in excess
of ninety-eight years.
(b) Not more than one exemption shall be allowed any
individual or family unit or with respect to any residential
unit. No exemption shall exceed the value of the real estate
assessable to the owner or, in case of ownership through stock
or membership in a corporation, the value of the proportion
which his interest in the corporation bears to the assessed
value of the property.
(c) By general law and subject to conditions specified
therein, the exemption shall be increased to a total of twenty-
five thousand dollars of the assessed value of the real estate
for each school district levy. By general law and subject to
conditions specified therein, the exemption for all other levies
may be increased up to an amount not exceeding ten thousand
dollars of the assessed value of the real estate if the owner
has attained age sixty-five or is totally and permanently dis-
abled.
(d) By general law and subject to conditions specified
therein, the Legislature may provide to renters, who are
permanent residents, ad valorem tax relief on school district
levies. Such ad valorem tax relief shall be in the form and
amount established by general law.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the following statement
be placed on the ballot:
