The Florida House voted to send the proposed Constitutional Amendment to voters last Friday, April 15, 2011. 

But the proposal pending in the Florida Senate to require Senate Confirmation of Supreme Court nominees, which was thought to be the Senate’s opening salvo in taking up the broader Supreme Court restructuring plan, has been taken off the table.
