Disposition: This amendment was not presented to voters for ratification.
Amends article 13 section 7
[This proposed amendment from the 1979 Regular Session never appeared before voters for ratification, since it was superceded by SJR6 in the 1980 Budget Session, which voters ultimately did not ratify.]
The rate of taxation on tangible property shall not exceed on each dollar of valuation, two and four-tenths mills for general State purposes, and such additional levy as the Legislature may provide for the State's share of the support of a portion of the public school system as defined in Article X, Section 2 of this Constitution, such proportion consisting only of kindergarten schools, common schools and high schools.
The Legislature shall determine by law the method of allocation of the State's contribution to the various school districts.
