November 5, 1996 General Election
QUESTION: Shall constitution bar passage of tax, tax increase or revenue measure submitted to voters unless majority of registered voters approve?
SUMMARY: This measure would amend the state constitution. The law now allows passage of a law that would impose or increase taxes or raise revenue by majority vote of those voting. This measure would bar voters from passing any such law unless a majority of the registered voters affected approve the law. The new requirement also would apply to new tax bases, votes to exceed a tax base, and issuance of new bonds for capital construction or improvements.
