This measure was part of a series of propositions from a constitutional convention called for in 1970. This included a vote on a full draft of a new constitution. Voters were given the opportunity to vote on four special propositions apart from the vote on the new constitution on the April 28, 1972 ballot.

The other propositions on the April 28, 1970 ballot included the following:
