Florida's Save Our Homes Constitutional Amendment Upheld

Today, in Lanning et al. v. Pilcher et al (1D07-6564) the First DCA found no constitutional violations in the "Save Our Homes" Amendment to the Florida Constitution. The court stated:

For these reasons we hold that Article VII, Section 4(c) of the Florida Constitution is valid under the United States Constitution and that it does not violate a nonresident’s rights under the Equal Protection Clause, the Privileges and Immunities Clause, or the Commerce Clause. Likewise, we hold that section 193.155, Florida Statutes, the law implementing Article VII, Section 4(c), is constitutionally valid.
