Text of measure

A vote "FOR" will amend provisions in the Constitution of Nebraska pertaining to taxes to: 1. create property tax levy limits for various governmental subdivisions which could be exceeded by a majority vote of the voters. 2. authorize the Legislature to prescribe the means to determine the fair market value of real property for property tax purposes; and 3. provide that the value of real property for property tax purposes may not exceed 80% of its fair market value for agricultural and horticultural land, or 100% of its fair market value for other real property. A vote "FOR" will also amend the Nebraska Constitution to require the Legislature to establish standards of efficiency for the delivery of local governmental services. All of these amendments are severable.
A vote "AGAINST" will not cause the Constitution of the Nebraska to be amended in such a manner.
Shall the Nebraska Constitution be amended, through severable provisions, to: create property tax levy limits for various governmental subdivisions which could be exceeded by a majority vote of the voters; authorize the Legislature to prescribe means to determine the fair market value of real property for property tax purposes; provide that the values of real property for such purposes may not exceed 80% of fair market value for agricultural and horticultural land or 100% of fair market value for other real property; and require the Legislature to establish standards of efficiency for delivery of local governmental services?[1]
