I've picked up a copy of the Constitutional amendment bill which is at least amended in committee and perhaps represents the result after last night's debate, which I understand lasted over 6 hours.
Some changes since the original:
The typo-correction amendment has been separated into two different typo correction amendments.
An additional amendment seeks to give more flexibility in terms of the location of polling places, though I believe it still requires them. So, as far as I can tell, we still won't be allowing the possibility of online voting, even in a recall.
The recall petition number has been changed to the maximum of 2000 or 25% of the previous year's voters.
The initiative/amendment petition number has been changed to 10% of the student body.
The total number of amendments appears to be 6, now.
