Amendment 5 to this year’s ballot asks voters to approve an amendment that would “increase the legislature’s authority regarding court rules, increase the access by the legislature to records of the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and require confirmation by the Senate of Supreme Court justices.”  At its October 5, 2012 meeting, the Florida Bar Board of Directors voted to formally oppose Amendment 5.
