State Ballot Issues — A General Revision Of The Laws

A little-publicized constitutional amendment is to be submitted to the people at the November general election to permit general revisions of the statutes at a time and in a manner as the legislature shall determine. The last general revision of the laws took place in 1846. The experience was apparently not satisfactory, for the constitution of 1850, four years later, prohibited general revisions. The 1908 constitution continued the prohibition. The proposed new constitution to be voted on in April, 1963, also continues the prohibition.
