Text of measure

The ballot summary said, "This initiative would require that before the state can spend money to move the capital or legislature, the voters must know the total costs, and approve a bond issue for all bondable costs of the move for the 12-year period after approval. A commission would determine both bondable and total costs of the move. Bondable and total costs would include moving personnel and offices, and social, economic and environmental costs to the present and new sites. These costs would also include costs to plan, build, furnish, use and finance facilities at least equal to those provided by the present capital."
