Text of measure

The question asked on the ballot was:

Shall the compensation for all elected state officials, including members of the general assembly and judges, be set by the Citizen's Commission established by this amendment rather than set by vote of the general assembly? Compensation changes (increases or decreases) would depend on actions of the Commission and the legislature.[1]
