procedures  and  provisions  of section 2 of article XIX of the New York
state constitution shall apply and  be  implemented,  except  that  such
convention shall only consider and submit amendments to the constitution
for  the  sole and limited purposes of providing for reform of the state
budget process, creating  a  real  property  tax  cap,  providing  state
mandate  and  regulatory  relief,  limiting state debt and expenditures,
