The North Dakota Peoples Control of Healthcare Costs Initiative, also known as Measure 4, was on the November 7, 1978 ballot in North Dakota as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated.[1][2]

The measure would have reduced the size and changed the membership requirements of the state health council. It also required that the chief state health officer must be at least 25 years old, but they did not need to be a physician. The position's salary would be set by the governor and could not exceed the governor's salary. The office would be in charge of setting maximum health service charges.[3]

Additionally, the measure would have had the Commissioner of Insurance investigate health care and develop a plan to improve and extend insurance coverage in the state. Such a plan would have been submitted to the voters at the next general election.[3]
