Text of measure
The language appeared on the ballot as:
Shall the Legislature adopt a resolution placing before the voters an amendment to the state constitution to provide for a maximum length for regular sessions of the legislature of 120 days which may be extended in 10-day increments by a resolution concurred in by a majority of the membership of each house? The vote on this proposition does not amend the constitution. It merely advises the legislature of the voters' preference.
