   Full Text (pdf)

:graybox: Constitutional Amendment B
   The Wyoming Supreme Court has held that school funding must be equalized among all
   school districts in the state.
  
   The adoption of this amendment would repeal the current limitation on the amount
   of property tax revenues that may be redistributed by the state through the School
   Foundation Program Account from school districts with greater property tax revenues
   to other school districts in the state.
   Full Text (pdf)

:graybox: Constitutional Amendment C
   This amendment authorizes the creation of permanent funds for two purposes:
   First, higher education scholarships, which include the current Hathaway scholarship program;
   and second, improving the quality of higher education. The principal in the funds, regardless
   of the source of the funds, cannot be expended. The earnings must be used for the purposes
   specified and the legislature is authorized to regulate how the earnings are used. Earnings
   from funds in the current Hathaway student scholarship account are intended to be used
   for college scholarships. The amendment would also allow the funds to be invested as the
   legislature authorizes, including in stocks.
