List of measures

The North Dakota Water Development and Funding Initiative, also known as Measure 4, was on the November 3, 1992 ballot in North Dakota as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated.[1][2] The measure would have established comprehensive water development objectives including construction, design and planning of water projects, putting the Missouri River to statewide beneficial use and developing other North Dakota water resources.[3]

The measure also would have imposed a one-half of one percent sales or excise tax on all sales at retail except mobile homes used for residential or business purposes, farm machinery and farm machinery repair parts, agricultural irrigation equipment, resale of mobile homes, natural gas and highway construction contracts entered before January 1, 1993. The tax would have been collected beginning January 1, 1993 and ending Midnight on December 31, 1999. The net revenue generated by the tax was to have been deposited in the resources trust fund to be used to implement the comprehensive water development objectives.[3]
