            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing an amendment to section 4 of article 7 of the constitution, in
  relation to reforming the state budget process

  Section 1. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That section 4 of  arti-
cle 7 of the constitution be amended to read as follows:
  S  4. The legislature may not alter an appropriation bill submitted by
the governor except to strike out or reduce items therein,  but  it  may
add  thereto  items  of  appropriation  provided that such additions are
stated separately and distinctly from the original items of the bill and
refer each to a single object or purpose. None of  the  restrictions  of
this section, however, shall apply to appropriations for the legislature
or judiciary.
  Such  an  appropriation bill shall when passed by both houses be a law
immediately  without  further  action  by  the  governor,  except   that
appropriations  for  the  legislature  and  judiciary and separate items
added to the governor's bills by the legislature  shall  be  subject  to
approval of the governor as provided in section 7 of article IV.
  UPON  THE  FAILURE  OF  BOTH  HOUSES TO FINALLY ACT WITHIN SEVENTY-TWO
HOURS FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE FISCAL YEAR ON ALL  APPROPRIATION  BILLS
SUBMITTED  BY  THE  GOVERNOR  IN  ACCORDANCE  WITH SECTION THREE OF THIS
ARTICLE, A DEFAULT BUDGET SHALL BE LAW FOR SUCH FISCAL YEAR AS  PROVIDED
IN   THIS  SECTION.  THE  DEFAULT  BUDGET  SHALL  BE  COMPRISED  OF  ALL
APPROPRIATION BILLS ACTED UPON BY BOTH HOUSES AND WHICH BECAME  LAW  FOR
THE  IMMEDIATELY  PRECEDING  FISCAL  YEAR  OR THE DEFAULT BUDGET FOR THE
IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING FISCAL YEAR IF A DEFAULT  BUDGET  BECAME  LAW  FOR
SUCH FISCAL YEAR AND ALL LAWS GOVERNING THE APPORTIONMENT AND ALLOCATION
APPROPRIATIONS   AND  THE  TRANSFER  AND  THE  LOAN  OF  FUNDS  FOR  THE
IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING FISCAL YEAR SHALL  CONTINUE  TO  BE  LAW  FOR  THE
FISCAL  YEAR  FOR  WHICH THE DEFAULT BUDGET IS A LAW, PROVIDED, HOWEVER,
