The language that appeared on the ballot:
Legislative Constitutional Amendment
This proposal authorizes the creation of a separate class of property for ad valorem property tax purposes to be known as marine vessels and authorizes the creation of separate subclasses of marine vessels for tax purposes. The General Assembly is authorized to provide for different rates, methods, assessment dates, and taxpayer liability for such class and need not provide for uniformity with other classes of property or for uniformity among the subclasses of marine vessels. The portion of any ad valorem tax on marine vessels to be retained by the state shall be as provided by law. Marine vessels are defined as all vessels used or capable of being used as a means of transportation on water, except for seaplanes. Legislation is necessary to implement the amendment.
