           "Sec. 9.  [CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT PROPOSED.] 
           An amendment to the Minnesota Constitution is proposed to 
        the people.  If the amendment is adopted, two sections will be 
        added to article XIV to read: 
           Sec. 12.  Beginning with the fiscal year starting July 1, 
        2007, 63.75 percent of the revenue from a tax imposed by the 
        state on the sale of a new or used motor vehicle must be 
        apportioned for the transportation purposes described in section 
        13, then the revenue apportioned for transportation purposes 
        must be increased by ten percent for each subsequent fiscal year 
        through June 30, 2011, and then the revenue must be apportioned 
        100 percent for transportation purposes after June 30, 2011. 
           Sec. 13.  The revenue apportioned in section 12 must be 
        allocated for the following transportation purposes:  not more 
        than 60 percent must be deposited in the highway user tax

        over a five-year period, so that after June 30, 2011, all of the 
        revenue is dedicated at least 40 percent for public transit 
        assistance and not more than 60 percent for highway purposes? 
                                           Yes .......
                                           No ........" "
