Text of measure

The text of the measure said:

Shall the Constitution be amended so as to provide that the Supreme Court shall have jurisdiction and authority to answer questions of law from any state appellate or federal district or appellate court?

This proposal provides that the Supreme Court of Georgia shall have jurisdiction and authority to answer any question of law from any state appellate or federal district or appellate court. Currently the Supreme Court has constitutional authority to answer questions of law from state and federal appellate courts only. The proposal adds the authority to answer questions of law from federal district courts. This procedure is used when another court desires to ask the Georgia Supreme Court to determine an unsettled question of state law.
