Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

A vote “FOR” will amend the Nebraska Constitution so as to limit members of the Nebraska Legislature to two consecutive terms. Under this amendment, no person will be eligible to serve as a member of the Nebraska Legislature for four years after the completion of two consecutive legislative terms. Legislative service prior to January 1, 2001, will not be counted for calculating consecutive terms, and service in office for more than one-half of a term will be considered service for a full term.
A vote “AGAINST” will not amend the Nebraska Constitution so as to impose the legislative term limits described above.
Shall the Nebraska Constitution be amended to provide that no person shall be eligible to serve as a member of the Nebraska Legislature for four years after the expiration of two consecutive legislative terms? Legislative service prior to January 1, 2001, will not be counted for the purpose of calculating consecutive legislative terms, and service in office for more than one-half of a legislative term will be considered service for a full term.[1]
