Text of the proposal

The language that appeared on the ballot:

The passage of this amendment would change the minimum requirement for petition signatures for initiative and referendums. Currently the petition must be signed by at least 15% of the qualified voters in the state, with that number based on those who voted in the last general election. There must also be at least one qualified voter signing from at least two-thirds of the counties. This amendment would keep the overall, or statewide, number of signatures required the same, but would increase the minimum number required in at least two-thirds of the counties from one signature to 15% of the qualified voters of that county, as determined by the number of votes in the last general election. The purpose of this amendment is to ensure that the signatures needed to place an initiative or referendum on the ballot cannot be gathered in only the most populated counties, and that a significant number of qualified voters from throughout the state support the proposal.[1]
