Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

Legislative Statute This Act grants to the un-remarried surviving spouse of a member of the armed forces of the United States killed in service during a war or armed conflict a homestead exemption from all ad valorem taxation for state, county, municipal, and school purposes in the same amount as that to which a disabled veteran is granted by law. Current law only grants such an exemption to a disabled veteran or the un-remarried surviving spouse of a disabled veteran, and the exemption amounts to $43,000.00. If approved by a majority of the voters, the Act becomes effective on January 1, 2001, and applies to all tax years beginning on or after that date.
