Text of measure

The language appeared on the ballot as:[1]

2. LENGTHENS GOVERNOR’S TIME FOR POSTSESSION VETO OR APPROVAL OF BILLS
QUESTION - Shall Governor be allowed more time to approve or veto bills presented after fifth day before end of legislative session?

PURPOSE - Amends state constitution. Extends from 20 to 30 days the time after adjournment that Governor may hold bills presented for signing after fifth day before legislative session ends. Permits voter referendum petition process to start before Governor approves bill. May thus extend time to collect referendum signatures, but will shorten time to collect signatures for bills presented to Governor more than 20 days after adjournment. Vetoed bills must be returned by Governor with written objections.
