Text of measure

The question on the ballot appeared as:[2]

Shall prohibitions against special laws that pertain to less than all counties of a class be repealed retroactively and shall charter or constitutional counties form a separate class of counties outside of the classification system? There would be no direct fiscal impact. The proposal is designed to maintain existing laws. [3]
