Oregon Redefining “Nuclear Waste”, Measure 15 (1986)
The Oregon Redefining “Nuclear Waste” Act, also known as Measure 15, was on the November 4, 1986 ballot in Oregon as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have redefined “radioactive waste” in existing laws due to newer legal definitions of the term.

Text of measure
The language appeared on the ballot as:
15. SUPERSEDES “RADIOACTIVE WASTE” DEFINITION; CHANGES ENERGY FACILITY STUDY PAYMENT PROCEDURE
EXPLAINED - Measure supersedes existing law defining “radioactive waste.” It deletes from definition reference to Energy Facility Siting Council rules identifying materials posing no significant danger, ads to definition wastes generated before June 1, 1981 in producing zirconium, hafnium, or niobium, containing specified quantities of radium 226, and adds uranium mine and mill wastes as defined by federal law. Removes need for advance agreement by energy facility applicant before charging applicant facility study costs exceeding application fee.
