PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO SECTIONS J, a, 3, 9, and 10 of ARTICLE IX AND FOR THE REPEAL OF SECTION 13 OP ARTICLE IX Explanation of Amendment Tills amendment would revise Section 1 of Article IX to permit the General Assembly to classify property for tax purposes, subject to the following restrictions: (1) the classifications ore to be based on the nature and characteristics of the property and not on the nature, characteristics, residence or business of the owner or the amount or number owned; (3) all real estate is to constitute one class, except that lands used for forestry purposes and mineral rights in land may each be classified separately; and (3) it any clat* of property is taxed by valuation, such tax is to be uniform as to the class. This amendment would also revise Section X «rf Article IX to permit the General Assembly to levy or authorise the levy,of miscellaneous type* of taxes, such to be uniform upon the same class of subjects within the territorial limits of the authority levying the -tax. The levy of a graduated Income tax would be forbidden. This amendment would also revise flection S to require ownership or it* equivalent plus use as a basis for exemption of charitable, religious, and other similar property from taxation. In addition, non-profit hospitals would be added to the list of institutions and purposes for which the General Assembly may grant tax exemption by general law. This amendment would also revise Section* 9 and 10 to subject the taxing powers of cities and other local governments to the same restrictions as would be imposed on the General Assembly. It would also broaden the language in regard to obligations of these governments, requiring them to levy taxes not merely—as now —for "debta contracted" but rather for "liabilities Incurred." This amendment would, in addition, repeal Section 13, which was adopted in 1880 to au­ thorise the corporate authorities of Chicago to issue Columbian Exposition bonds. PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO SECTION 8 OF ARTICLE X Explanation of Amendment This amendment eliminates the concluding proviso in the present Section S of Article X which • prohibits a sheriff or county treasurer from succeeding himself in office. PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO SECTION 10 OF ARTICLE X Explanation of Amendment This amendment would revise Section 10 of Article X by eliminating specific salary limits for certain county officials, which limits were written into the Constitution when it was adopted in 1870. Such limitations in the future would be prescribed by law—that is, by the General Assembly—rather than by a constitutional provision. PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO SECTION 6 OF ARTICLE XI Explanation of Amendment This amendment would remove the constitutional provision imposing double liability on stockholders in Illinois chartered banks for liabilities of such banks, would eliminate any similar liability arising from statutes, and would prohibit future laws Imposing any similar liability. The amendment does not impair rights, if any, to enforce double liability of stockholders existing at the date of the adoption of the amendment, provided action to enforce such double liability is commenced against stockholders (a) as to existing liabilities payable on demand or for which a cause of action has already aecrued, within one year from adoption of the amendment, and (b) as to any other existing liability, within one year from the time when the cause of action therefor first hereafter accrues or could so accrue by demand.

NO For the proposed amendment to Sections 1, 2, 3, 9, and 10 of Article DC o£ the Constitution and for the repeal of Section 13 of Article DC of the Constitution. • YES For the proposed amendment to Section 8 of e YES For the proposed amendment to Section 10 of Article X of the Consti­ Article X of the Consti­ NO tution.
