The bill was sponsored by State Representative Samuel Smith (R-66).[2]

Path to the ballot

See also: Amending the Pennsylvania Constitution

In Pennsylvania, an amendment can go on the ballot after just one session, but only if the legislature declares an emergency. In the absence of an emergency, the amendment must be considered in two separate legislative sessions. The amendment was not approved in a prior legislative session and thereby cannot qualify for the 2014 ballot.
