            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.
