Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

The proposed amendment would change the appointment of a tax review commission from every five years to every ten years. The problem expressed by the Legislature has been the lack of time to adequately assess and implement, if appropriate, the recommendations of the commission. Under the proposed amendment, if the tax review commission is appointed every ten years, then the Legislature will have more time between appointments to consider tax review commission recommendations.
