Text of measure

The ballot question was, "Shall the state constitution be amended to permit the people in any country by majority vote to create a combined "city-county" government through the adoption of a home rule charter under which other municipal corporations having such powers and duties as are prescribed in the charter could also be retained or established, if desired, and to set separate constitutional debt limitations for the "city-county" as thus created and for any new or retained municipal corporations?"
