Current Bill Summary

SCS/SJR 2 - Under current law, initiative petitions proposing constitutional amendments must be signed by 8% of the legal voters in each of two-thirds of the congressional districts. This constitutional amendment, if approved by the voters, requires such petitions to be signed by 15% of the legal voters in each of the congressional districts.

Current law additionally provides that initiative petitions proposing constitutional amendments shall take effect when approved by a simple majority of the votes cast thereon. This constitutional amendment requires such initiatives to be approved by at least 60% of the votes cast thereon.

This amendment is substantially similar to SJR 31 (2020).
