Text of measure

The language on the ballot said:

Shall the Utah Constitution be amended to: (1) explicitly authorize the Utah House of Representatives to convene for the purpose of impeachment if two-thirds of the representatives are in favor of convening; (2) require the Utah Senate to convene for a trial of impeachment if the House of Representatives has voted to impeach; (3) allow the same amount of legislative compensation per day during an impeachment session as is allowed during an annual general session; and (4) delete an outdated reference to justices of the peace in an impeachment provision?
