Florida may see recount on property tax breaks

November 06, 2008 02:38PM

A vote recount may be needed for Constitutional Amendment 3, which provides for property tax breaks for homeowners on storm protection and renewable energy investments. Constitutional amendments in Florida require the approval of 60 percent of voters, and 60.4 percent approved Amendment 3. But if the margin of victory remains less than half a percentage point once all the votes have been counted, a recount will be needed.
