The providing of insurance against loss or damage to crops by hail is
hereby declared to be a public purpose, and the Legislature is authorized and empowered to levy
an assessment upon agricultural land for such purpose, with such exemptions as may be provided
by law. The state may be divided into hail insurance districts and the assessment per acre in the
different districts shall be as the Legislature may determine, but such assessment shall be uniform
upon all land of the same district that is similarly situated. The assessment hereby authorized may
be levied by the Legislature direct, or by the corporate authorities of the districts herein provided
for, or by such other agency as may be authorized by general law.
