Language on the ballot:

Shall the limitation upon the total amount of general ad valorem taxes imposed upon real and tangible personal property for all purposes in any one year under the Michigan Constitution which has been reduced by law to .2476 (0.2476 per $1,000 of taxable valuation) be renewed to its original .2500 mills (0.2500 per $1,000 of taxable valuation), for a period of ten (10) years, 2013-2022, inclusive, to provide funds for the purchase of fire motor vehicles, apparatus, equipment and buildings.
