Note

The Constitution Study Guide prepared for Illinois adult GED students by Southwestern Illinois College says only this about Article XIV:

Article 14 explains how the Illinois Constitution can be changed. Amendments to the Constitution may be proposed either by a Constitutional Convention or by the General Assembly. If a Constitutional Convention is held to revise or amend the Constitution, a majority of Illinois voters must approve the changes. If the amendments are proposed by the General Assembly, the amendments must be approved by three-fifths of the voters at the next general election.

It omits to mention that under Article XIV, Illinois Constitution#Section 3, Article XIV also allows for initiated constitutional amendments.
