Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

This initiative would declare the policy of the voters of Montana to pass an amendment to the U.S. Constitution imposing term limits on members of Congress. Legislative and Congressional candidates could take a pledge to support a term limits constitutional amendment. Any candidate for congressional or state legislative office who fails to support such a term limits amendment would have the words "Disregarded Montana Voters on Term Limits" printed next to that candidate's name on the ballot. A challenge could be brought in the Montana Supreme Court to require that language to be added or removed from the ballot.[1]
