Oregon Ballot Measure 13 (2008)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
Specifically, the measure, if it had been approved by Oregon's voters in November 2008, would have prevented public employee unions and associations from making contributions to political campaigns if the contribution might "create a conflict of interest or ingratiate a public officeholder" to the union, when the candidate who received the donations from the public employee union might later--if he or she successfully attains office--be in a position to vote for or against public employee contracts.
Oregon Ballot Measure 13 was one of 29 initiatives filed by Sizemore for the 2008 ballot. As of October 2007, Sizemore's website did not include Ballot Measure 13 as one that he was actively pursuing.
History of the initiative
Sizemore and Trickey filed the wording for the initiative with the Oregon Secretary of State on March 21, 2006. Although the wording was filed in 2006, the intent of the measure's sponsors is to collect signatures to qualify the measure for the November 4, 2008 ballot.
Oregon Ballot Measure 13 was approved for circulation on August 9, 2006. It did not make the ballot.
In order to qualify for the ballot, 82,769 valid signatures needed to be turned into the Secretary of State's office.
