Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot said:
- "Do you approve the proposed amendment to the State Constitution, agreed to by the Legislature, which changes the current $0.09 per gallon dedication of the motor fuels tax to $0.105 per gallon to be used only for the funding of the State transportation system, subject to previously enacted laws dedicating any of these revenues for debt service on bonds of the State or for any other uses of these revenues?"
This amendment to the State Constitution dedicates 10.5 cents per gallon of the existing motor fuels tax for the cost of funding the State transportation system. The current constitutional dedication is 9 cents per gallon of the motor fuels tax. The existing motor fuels tax is 10.5 cents per gallon for gasoline and 13.5 cents per gallon for diesel fuel. This amendment does not change the motor fuels tax rates.
