Utah Education Regulation Amendment (2012)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The Utah Education Regulation Amendment did not make the 2012 ballot in the state of Utah as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have given Utah’s governor control over education in the state. More specifically, the proposal would allow the governor to retain the state school board and Board of Regents, but they would be under the governor's control, if the measure is enacted.
Path to the ballot
According to Section 1, Article XXIII, a two-thirds vote is necessary in the state legislature to place a proposed amendment before the state's voters. Sixteen states require a two-thirds supermajority vote in one session of the state's legislature before placing a proposed amendment on the ballot.
