Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

Legislative Constitutional Amendment This proposal would authorize an amendment to the Constitution of Maine to allow the Legislature to provide for the property tax assessment of waterfront land used for commercial fishing activities, based upon the value of its current use. The Constitution already authorizes this alternative method of property tax assessment for certain farmlands, woodlands, wildlife sanctuaries, and lands used for open space and recreation or the enjoyment of scenic natural beauty.
