The Oregon Privatization of Liquor Sales Initiative, also known as Oregon Liquor Control Modernization Act, did not make the November 2014 statewide ballot in Oregon as an initiated state statute. The measure would have privatized liquor sales and allows stores over 10,000 square feet to stock liquor on store shelves.[1][2]

Supporters of the measure submitted eight different proposed initiatives to the Oregon Secretary of State with the title "Oregon Liquor Control Modernization Act." Of the eight, only "Oregon Liquor Control Modernization Act #2" was approved for circulation.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]
