Final 2014 NY State constitutional amendment ballot proposal language

Following litigation eliminating the word “independent” from this year’s constitutional amendment asking voters to approve or reject a state redistricting commission, the State Board Of Elections has posted the final wording.

Two questions will appear on the November, 2014 ballot. The second amendment asks voters to approve an amendment “allowing electronic distribution of a state legislative bill to satisfy the constitutional requirement that a bill be printed and on the desks of state legislators at least three days before the Legislature votes on it. Under the current provisions of the Constitution, this requirement can only be satisfied by distribution of a physical printed copy.”
