Editorial: FL House took a “hard swipe at an independent judiciary.” This is “retribution masquerading as reform”

Scorching Tampa Bay Times Editorial:

Taking a hard swipe at an independent judiciary, the Florida House has passed a constitutional amendment that would ask voters to impose term limits on appellate judges and state Supreme Court justices. This is retribution masquerading as reform, and it would produce judges who are less qualified, less independent and less likely to withstand political pressure. The Senate should reject this blatant assault on the courts.
