proposing an amendment to section 18 of article 7 of  the  constitution,

  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

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

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

armed forces shall be provided by general laws.
