Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
- The Legislature submitted this proposal for a vote. It would amend the Montana Constitution to allow monies in the state workers' compensation insurance fund to be invested in private corporate capital stock. Currently, the Constitution prohibits such investment of public funds except for monies contributed to retirement funds. Like pension funds, workers' compensation investments would be managed by the State Board of Investments in accordance with recognized standards of financial management.
- Fiscal Statement: If the Montana Board of Investments had invested the maximum of 15% of the State Fund's assets in common stock in FY95, additional income would have been generated. The Montana Common Stock Pool twenty-year return average was 14.78% compared to the State Fund's FY95 return of 10.13%.
