Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
The Legislature submitted this proposal for a vote. State law currently gives the legislature authority to levy up to 6 mills on the taxable value of all real and personal property for the support, maintenance and improvement of the Montana university system. This legislative authority, however, expires in 1999. A statewide university mill levy has been in effect since approval by the electorate in 1920, and since 1948 has stayed constant at six mills. This proposal would continue the authority for the tax levy for ten additional years. The levy would generate revenue of up to $15 million a year beginning in fiscal year 2000 and increase approximately 2% a year for the remaining nine years.
