Proposition 24 had four provisions:
- Section 3 reduced legislative compensation and made further increases subject to voter approval.
- Section 4 reduced travel and living expenses for legislators and provided that further increases were subject to voter approval.
- Section 5 provided that legislators would forfeit some of their salary and reimbursement for travel and living expenses if the legislature failed to pass the budget bill by the constitutional deadline and that forfeited payments could be paid to legislators retroactively only if approved by the voters.
- Section 6 transferred control over reapportionment from the legislature to the Supreme Court, limited the factors to be used in reapportionment to essentially objective criteria, and subjected the Supreme Court’s plan to voter approval.
