PROPOSAL POPULARLY KNOWN AS THE COUNTY HOME RULE AMENDMENT

The amendment proposes to provide for the organization and government of counties. It authorizes any county to frame, adopt, or amend a charter and establish its form of government; permits the legislature to enact plans of county government subject to adoption by the electors in any county; provides for the transfer of the powers of townships and municipalities to the county, or for the withdrawal of such powers, by a vote of the people concerned; permits the adoption of a charter giving the county concurrent or exclusive municipal powers, or making the county a consolidated municipality; provides for the choosing of a charter commission, by popular vote, and for the framing of a charter by such commission. Summarizing, it proposes a form of "County Home Rule Government."


SHALL THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT, RELATING TO COUNTY AND TOWNSHIP ORGANIZATION AND GOVERNMENT, BE ADOPTED? [2][3]
