Speaker Cannon’s Statement Regarding Preclearance of Amendments 5 and 6

May 31, 2011 – Florida House Speaker Dean Cannon stated:

“The preclearance of Amendments 5 and 6 was a necessary step before the legislature could implement them as part of the upcoming redistricting process. More importantly, the preclearance of Amendments 5 and 6 is validation that Florida‟s new constitutional standards for redistricting promote and protect the ability of racial and language minority communities to equally participate in the electoral process and elect candidates of their choice.”
