Section 1. Either branch of the Legislature, at any regular session, or at any special or extraordinary session thereof called for such purpose either in the Governor's original call or any amendment thereof, may propose the revision or amendment of any portion or portions of this Constitution. Any such revision or amendment may relate to one subject or any number of subjects, but no amendment shall consist of more than one revised article of the Constitution.
If the proposed revision or amendment is agreed to by three-fifths of the members elected to each house, it shall be entered upon their respective Journals with the yeas and nays and published in one newspaper in each county where a newspaper is published for two times, one publication to be made not earlier than ten weeks and the other not later than six weeks, immediately preceding the election at which the same is to be voted upon, and thereupon submitted to the electors of the State for approval or rejection at the next general election, provided, however, that such revision or amendment may be submitted for approval or rejection in a special election under the conditions described in and in the manner provided by Section 3 of Article XVII of the Constitution. If a majority of the electors voting upon the amendment adopt such amendment the same shall become a part of this Constitution.
