Utah State to Guarantee School District Debt, Proposition 4 (1996)
Utah Proposition 4 appeared on the November 1996 statewide ballot in Utah, where it passed. It was one of six statewide ballot measures that year in Utah, all of which passed. All six measures, including Proposition 4, were legislative referrals.
The ballot summary said:
Amends the Utah Constitution to 1) permit the state to guarantee the general obligation of every debt of every school district and to guarantee the debt incurred to refinance the school district debt; and 2) permit the state to guarantee school district debt by providing exemptions to constitutional provisions which prohibit the state from lending its credit, assuming debt of any school district, imposing taxes for local government purposes, and contracting debt in excess of the state's debt ceiling.
