Text of measure

This resolution proposes to amend the Utah Constitution to: specify that the time for calculating residency requirements for a person appointed to fill mid-term vacancies in the office of senator or representative is the time of appointment rather than the time for filing for the office; clarify that a provision prohibiting a senator or representative from continuing to serve after ceasing to be a resident of the applicable district applies also to a person appointed to fill a mid-term vacancy; and make technical changes.[2]
