Introduced  by  Sen. TEDISCO -- read twice and ordered printed, and when

            CONCURRENT RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY

proposing an amendment to section 14 of article 3 of  the  constitution,
  in  relation  to  the procedure for voting non-recurring revenue items
  taxes

  Section 1. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That the  opening  para-
graph  of section 14 of article 3 of the constitution be amended to read
as follows:
  No bill shall be passed or become a law  unless  it  shall  have  been
printed  and  upon the desks of the members, in its final form, at least
three calendar legislative days prior to its final passage,  unless  the
governor, or the acting governor, shall have certified, under his or her
hand  and  the  seal of the state, the facts which in his or her opinion
necessitate an immediate vote thereon, in which case it  must  neverthe-
less  be  upon  the  desks of the members in final form, not necessarily
printed, before its  final  passage;  nor  shall  any  bill,  EXCEPT  AS
PROVIDED  IN  THIS  SECTION,  be  passed  or become a law, except by the
assent of a majority of the members elected to each branch of the legis-
lature; NOR SHALL ANY BILL WHICH PROVIDES REVENUE TO THE  STATE  OR  ANY
POLITICAL  SUBDIVISION  THEREOF  IN  A  MANNER THAT IS NON-RECURRING, BE
PASSED OR BECOME A LAW, EXCEPT  BY  THE  ASSENT  OF  TWO-THIRDS  OF  THE
MEMBERS ELECTED TO EACH BRANCH OF THE LEGISLATURE VOTING SEPARATELY; and
upon  the last reading of a bill, no amendment thereof shall be allowed,
and the question upon its final passage shall be taken immediately ther-
eafter, and the ayes and nays entered on the journal.
  § 2. Resolved (if the Assembly concur), That the  foregoing  amendment
be referred to the first regular legislative session convening after the
next  succeeding  general  election  of members of the assembly, and, in
conformity with  section  1  of  article  19  of  the  constitution,  be
published for 3 months previous to the time of such election.
