Text of measure
The language appeared on the ballot as:
7. REPEALS GOVERNORS' RETIREMENT ACT - Purpose: Measure would repeal 1971 legislative act establishing retirement fund for the office of governor. Any person who served as governor for two years upon retirement from public employment, Oregon or federal, is entitled to pension equal to 45 percent of his salary. However, benefits are reduced by amounts received from other public retirement programs. Retirement fund is financed by legislative appropriations, donations, and contributions from governor’s salary in the amount of 7 percent.
ESTIMATE OF FINANCIAL EFFECTS: One ex-governor is eligible for Governor's retirement benefits. During the 1972-'73 fiscal year, retirement benefit payments would total $7,875. During the same period the current Governor would pay $2,065 into the fund. If this measure passes, annual savings are estimated at $5,810 for each of the next two fiscal years.
