March 7, 2017
Akerman real estate lawyer Jose Diaz, who serves as a member of the Florida House of Representatives and chairman of the House Commerce Committee, has been appointed by House Speaker Richard Corcoran to Florida's Constitution Revision Commission. He is one of only five state lawmakers selected for this panel.

In an article titled, "Corcoran Names Lawmakers to Constitution Panel," by New Service Florida, Corcoran explained what led his decision-making.

The publication wrote, "'The rationale behind this being that those who have placed their name before the people have an excellent understanding who they work for,' the speaker said in a statement.

Corcoran also said he looked for appointees who 'who understood and respected the role of our Constitution and the separation of powers.'

'I believe all these appointees share that respect and understanding,' Corcoran said. 'With that as a foundation, these appointees are diverse, principled and won't march in lockstep with anyone. And my only charge to each has been to do what they believe to be right.'"
