In addition, Amendment P prohibits legislative appropriations from exceeding anticipated revenues and existing available funds. The amendment is not intended to affect other constitutional provisions.

A vote "Yes" will include balanced budget requirements in the Constitution.

A vote "No" will leave the Constitution as it is.
