Legislative action that proposed this amendment: SJR6 1897 Regular Session

Disposition: Voters rejected this proposed amendment.

Amends article 6, section 32


Every bill and joint resolution signed by the presiding officer of each house of the Legislature, as provided in section 24 of this article, and signed by the Governor or passed by both houses over his objections, as provided in Section 8, Article 7 of this Constitution, and deposited in the office of the Secretary of State shall, in all courts, be taken and treated as conclusive evidence of its due enactment and authenticity.

[The 1900 Laws of Utah mentions the expense of printing the text of these amendments in county newspapers, as required by Article XXIII of the Utah Constitution. I am not sure when/whether it was actually presented to voters for ratification. If it was presented to voters, we can infer that they rejected it, since this amendment was not incorporated into subsequent editions of the Utah Constitution.]
