The language appeared on the ballot as:[1]

2. DEVELOPMENT OF NONNUCLEAR NATURAL ENERGY RESOURCES
Purpose: Repeals Oregon Constitution Article XI-D, Section 3. Creates constitutional provision requiring legislature to provide for management, conservation and development of nonnuclear natural energy resources. Authorizes state funding for public, private utilities or agencies for development or conservation thereof. Utilities and agencies operating in Oregon have priority in funds allocated and energy developed. Authorizes state debt and bonding not exceeding one percent true cash value of all taxable property in state to fund these provisions.

ESTIMATE OF FINANCIAL EFFECT: Based on an estimate of Oregon’s 1978 taxable property, this act would establish a maximum bonding limitation of $439 million to provide for the Energy Conservation and Production Fund.
