PUBLIC QUESTION TO BE VOTED UPON
PUBLIC QUESTION #1
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO DEDICATE ASSESSMENTS ON WAGES
BY THE STATE TO THE PAYMENT OF EMPLOYEE BENEFITS
Shall the amendment to Article VIII, Section II of the State Constitution, agreed to by the Legislature, which: prohibits
collection by the State of assessments based solely on employee wages and salaries for any purpose other than
providing employee benefits; dedicates all employer and employee contributions collected for any employee benefit fund,
and all returns on investments of those contributions, to the purpose of that fund; and prohibits any transferring, borrowing,
appropriating or using of those contributions or returns for any other purpose, be approved?
YES
NO
INTERPRETIVE STATEMENT
This proposed constitutional amendment prohibits the collection by the State of assessments based on employee
wages and salaries for any purpose except paying employee benefits (or making other employee-authorized or
federally required payments, in the case of the Stateʼs own employees), dedicates all contributions made to the
unemployment compensation fund, the State disability benefits fund, or any other employee benefit fund, and all
returns on investments of those contributions, to the purpose of that fund, and prohibits the use of those contributions
or returns for any other purpose. The requirements of this proposed amendment do not apply to the gross income tax,
which is exclusively dedicated by the Constitution to the purpose of reducing or offsetting local property taxes.
