The ballot summary said:

Proposition 1 declares the rights of crime victims in the Utah Constitution by specifically stating the rights they possess, limiting the scope of the preliminary examination to determine probably cause except in certain circumstances, and permitting the use of reliable hearsay evidence to determine probably cause. The provisions regarding victim rights are subject to legislative definition and enforcement, and certain provisions regarding the preliminary examination and certain pretrial proceedings are subject to definition through statute or court rule.
