Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

Currently, the Arizona Constitution does not require that an initiative or a referendum include a dedicated funding source for required expenditures.

Proposition 101 would amend the Constitution to require that if an initiative or referendum measure proposes a mandatory expenditure of state revenue, establishes a fund for a specific purpose or allocates funding for a specific purpose, the measure must also designate an increased source of revenues sufficient to cover the entire present and future costs of the measure. The increased revenues cannot come from the state's general fund or cause a reduction in general fund revenues. If the designated revenue source fails to cover the mandated spending in a fiscal year, the Legislature may reduce the expenditure of state revenues to the amount of funding actually supplied by the designated revenue source for that fiscal year. [2][3]
