DeSantis suggests separate election day for ballot questions

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he wants to look into the idea of holding a separate election day for proposed changes to the state constitution.

DeSantis said Wednesday the state's ballots are too long and voters should be able to consider constitutional amendments on their own.

His comments came after a reporter asked him about a bill he signed last week that creates new hurdles on petition drives seeking to get amendments on the ballot.

DeSantis said he would like to see other changes in the process to amend the constitution, including a stand-alone election for ballot measures.
