Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

The Legislature submitted this proposal for a vote. The Montana Constitution prohibits the sale or transfer of public lands unless the state receives the full market value of the land sold. This measure would amend the Constitution to allow the transfer of state lands to a political subdivision of the state for less than full market value, unless prohibited by federal restrictions, and would allow the Legislature to enact laws providing for such disposition of public lands. All other transfers of public land would still require the payment of full market value to the State.
FISCAL NOTE: The proposed amendment's fiscal implications depend upon which land parcels the state transfers. Transferring income-producing parcels would result in some loss of income. However the state would realize some fiscal savings because it would not have to manage the parcels.[2]
