Proposal 5 would amend the Michigan Constitution by adding the following Section 26a to Article IX.

Z 

No new or additional taxes shall be imposed by the state government, nor shall it expand the base of taxation, nor shall it increase the rate of taxation unless:

(a) by the vote of two-thirds of all the elected members of each branch of the Legislature; or

(b) by a statewide vote of Michigan electors at a November election.

This section shall in no way be construed to limit or modify tax limitations otherwise created in this constitution.
