The language that appeared on the ballot:

In 1996, the voters approved a constitutional amendment giving every victim of every crime the right to receive notification and information about the progress of his or her case in court. The proposed amendment would change that. If approved, the amendment would allow the Legislature to exempt from the protection of the Victims' Bill of Rights whichever felonies or misdemeanors it so chooses and specify which crime victims are protected by the Victims' Bill of Rights.
