            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing an amendment to section 18 of article 7 of  the  constitution,
  in  relation  to  providing  for  payment of bonuses to members of the
  armed forces from this state for service  during  the  period  of  the
  Korean war

  Section 1. RESOLVED (if the Assembly concur), That section 18 of arti-
cle 7 of the constitution be amended to read as follows:
  S  18. (A) The legislature may authorize by law the creation of a debt
or debts of the state to provide for the payment of a bonus to each male
and female member of the armed forces of the United States, still in the
armed forces, or separated or discharged under honorable conditions, for
service while on active duty with the armed forces at  any  time  during
the  period  from  December  seventh,  nineteen hundred forty-one to and
including September second, nineteen hundred forty-five, who was a resi-
dent of this state for a period of at least six months immediately prior
to his or her enlistment, induction or call  to  active  duty.  The  law
authorizing  the  creation of the debt shall provide for payment of such
bonus to the next of kin of each male and female  member  of  the  armed
forces  who,  having  been  a resident of this state for a period of six
months immediately prior to his or her enlistment, induction or call  to
active  duty,  died  while  on active duty at any time during the period
from December seventh,  nineteen  hundred  forty-one  to  and  including
September  second,  nineteen  hundred  forty-five;  or who died while on
active duty subsequent to September second, nineteen hundred forty-five,
or after his or her separation or discharge under honorable  conditions,
prior to receiving payment of such bonus. An apportionment of the moneys
on the basis of the periods and places of service of such members of the
armed forces shall be provided by general laws.
