Text of measure

A vote "FOR" will amend the Constitution of Nebraska to return the number of signatures required on initiative and referendum petitions to ten percent of the votes cast for Governor at the most recent preceding general election if for a proposed Constitutional amendment; seven percent of such votes cast if for enactment of a law; ten percent of such votes cast if seeking to suspend the effect of an act of the Legislature pending a vote of the people; and five percent of such votes cast if for a referendum on an act of the Legislature.
A vote "AGAINST" will not cause the Constitution of Nebraska to be amended in such a manner and the number of signatures required will be based on percentages of the total number of registered voters.
Shall the Nebraska Constitution be amended to provide that: petitions seeking to place proposed measures on the ballot for a vote of the people be signed by registered voters equaling ten percent of the votes cast for Governor at the most recent preceding general election if for a proposed Constitutional amendment; seven percent if for enactment of a law; ten percent of such votes cast if seeking to suspend the effect of an act of the Legislature pending a vote of the people; and five percent of such votes cast if for a referendum on an act of the Legislature?[1]
