TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Floridians will face a very long ballot when they go to the polls on November 6.
 
In addition to all the political races, the ballot includes 11 proposed constitutional amendments.

They include such proposals as giving the Florida Senate the power to confirm Supreme Court justices, limiting state revenues based on inflation and population growth, and eliminating a provision in the state Constitution that prevents tax dollars from going to religious groups.
 
The League of Women Voters has studied each amendment.
 
Executive Director Jessica Lowe-Minor says the group opposes all 11 because they represent legislative overreach.
 
"The Legislature is getting into areas that we really don't think is appropriate for them. So many of the amendments deal with local government revenue and we certainly don't think that's something the Florida Legislature should be dictating how local government revenue is raised or spent."
