SUBMITTED BY THE GOVERNOR PURSUANT TO SECTION THREE OF ARTICLE SEVEN  OF
THE CONSTITUTION, CONTAINING PROPOSED LEGISLATION, SHALL CLEARLY IDENTI-
FY  A  CORRESPONDING APPROPRIATION WITHIN THE BUDGET APPROPRIATION BILLS
SUBMITTED BY THE GOVERNOR FOR THAT FISCAL YEAR.  THE  LEGISLATURE  SHALL
NOT ACT UPON BUDGET BILLS, PURSUANT TO SECTION THREE OF ARTICLE SEVEN OF
THE  CONSTITUTION SUBMITTED BY THE GOVERNOR, UNLESS SUCH BILLS HAVE BEEN
SUFFICIENTLY ITEMIZED BY SETTING FORTH, WITH PARTICULARITY, THE  SECTION

SHALL NOT APPLY TO PROPOSED LEGISLATION THAT AMENDS THE TAX LAW.
  § 2. The opening paragraph of subdivision 1 of section 24 of the state

read as follows:
  The  budget submitted annually by the governor shall be simultaneously
accompanied by a bill or bills for all proposed appropriations and reap-
propriations and for the proposed measures of taxation or  other  legis-
lation,  if  any,  recommended therein. Such bills shall be submitted by
the governor and shall be known as budget bills. SUCH BUDGET BILLS SHALL
CLEARLY REFERENCE THE SECTION IN THE ACCOMPANYING BILL  OR  BILLS  WHERE
THE CORRESPONDING APPROPRIATION OR REAPPROPRIATION CAN BE LOCATED.
  § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
