Water amendments passed 2018-11-06

The obvious water constitutional amendments passed resoundingly in both Florida and Georgia.

FL 9 and GA 1, Water Amendments

By well more than the required 60%, the people of Florida voted for Amendment 9 to Ban Offshore Oil and Gas Drilling.

FL Amendment 9: Ban Offshore Oil and Gas Drilling, Florida

In Georgia, Amendment 1 for the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Trust Fund passed overwhelmingly.

GA Amendment 1: Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Trust Fund, Georgia

Unfortunately, Georgia Amendment 2, for some appointed judges and “predictability of judicial outcomes”, also passed, by more than 2 to 1.

GA Amendment 2: appoint some judges, Georgia

So two out of three ain’t bad, especially when the two that won directly affect waters onshore and offshore, in Georgia and Florida.
