Text of measure

Ballot title

The official ballot title appeared as:[2]

This measure amends the Oklahoma Constitution. It amends Section 9 and 10 of Article 10. It affects certain school millage levies. The change is to the emergency levy, local support levy, and the building fund levy for school districts. It would allow each school district to decide to eliminate the need for an annual election for those levies. Once the levies are approved, the voters of the school district would also decide whether to allow them to continue from year to year. The vote on the levies would change only if another election is held and the voters rescind their prior action. Such an election would be held if a petition is signed or the board of education recommends an annual vote be taken.
