Initiative Constitutional Amendment

The proposed constitutional amendment would:

(Currently, a simple majority vote of legislature is required to enact such laws.)

2. Retroactively apply the super majority vote requirement to any such law enacted on or after March 1, 2000.

3. Exempt from the super majority vote requirement any such law which can be applied at the option of local governments.
