Senator Brough has introduced a bill at Albany providing for an amendment to Article VI of the State Constitution as follows: The Legislature may establish a court of record in any county not contained with other counties within a city or in any city containing within its boundaries more than one county, which court may be vested with original jurisdiction in proceedings for taking private property for public use, assessing property for benefits and awarding damages, and in the proceedings for the review of assessments of property for taxation. Judges of such court shall sit without jury. They shall be appointed in such manner and hold office for such term as the Legislature may prescribe.

In order for this resolution to become an amendment it is necessary for the Legislature to pass it at this session, to repass it in 1911 and in the fall of that year submit it to the people to be adopted by a majority vote.
