2011 Senate Resolution 48 (relating to creating fiscal year allowable revenues for the state and local governmental units, et al.)

The names of 4 of 132 legislators are attached to resolution.

Senate Committee Endorses Constitutional Constraints on State and Local Revenue and Spending. (Wisconsin Budget Project, 3/5/2012)

Excerpt: Like some of the other proposed constitutional amendments under consideration, this one would tie the hands of future legislators and local government officials by putting detailed state and local fiscal policy into the state constitution.

Remember that constitutional amendments need to be approved by both the Assembly and Senate in two different legislative sessions before going to the voters.
