For example, in Florida they are voting for:

  • Amendment 3 · Tax exemption for totally and partially disabled first-responders
    Results expected after 7 PM EST
  • Amendment 5 · Tax exemption for low-income, senior, and long-term residents

I read the senate and the house already voted for those laws. So why is there a need for a referendum? And why those laws specifically and not others?

Is it possible to have an amendment that says to dismiss all taxes for everyone? Such a law would probably be passed by the public too.
