BILL NUMBER:S1086 TITLE OF BILL: CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY proposing an amendment to section 14 of article 3 of the constitution, in relation to requiring the assent of a two-thirds majority of the members elected to each branch of the legislature prior to the immediate vote on any legislation which has not aged for three days PURPOSE: This bill requires legislation delivered to the legislature by a message of necessity, to be adopted only if it is widely supported, that is by a 2/3 majority in both houses. By requiring that such legislation must expire no later than two years after it becomes effective, it would have to be reconsidered and voted upon again to stay in effect, thus allowing time for sufficient review and comment. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 14 of Article 3 of the Constitution is amended to provide that a bill brought to an immediate vote by the Governor, must have the vote of a two-thirds majority of the members in each branch of the legislature to be enacted into law and such law, must expire no later than two years from its effective date.
