This measure did not or
will not appear on a ballot
A Georgia Taxpayer Protection Amendment did not make the November 2012 ballot in Georgia as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have limited how much the state can spend in a given year.[1] The limitations would have been based on the previous year budget adjusted for inflation and population.[2]

The proposed measure was introduced by Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers.

Text of measure

Had it been certified for the ballot, voters would have been asked:[3]

Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to provide for limitations on state government expenditures and reduction in taxation?

Path to the ballot

The amendment required approval on a two-thirds vote by both the State House and State Senate.

On February 24, 2011 the Georgia State Senate voted 42-7 in approval of the proposed measure. The measure did not make it through the State House.[2]
