The Oregon Tobacco Settlement Proceeds to Health, Housing and Transportation Programs Act, also known as Measure 89, was on the November 7, 2000 ballot in Oregon as a legislatively-referred state statute, where it was defeated.

Dedicates Tobacco Settlement Proceeds To Specified Health, Housing, Transportation Programs
 Supporters of the measure encouraged people to vote yes if they wanted to make an investment in healthy communities in Oregon, saying the measure would provide local public health and mental health services, elderly and disabled transportation, housing for the disabled and low/very low income, tobacco prevention activities, and shelter care.
Some of those who supported the measure are:
- Coalition of Concerned Community Mental Health Professionals
- Settlement Funds For Healthy Oregonians and Communities
- DaNES (Doctors and Nurses, Educators, Sanitarians) for Healthy Communities
- Housing Lobby Coalition
 Many were opposed to the measure simply because it didn't dedicate enough money to prevention of tobacco use, which they saw as most important in creating healthy communities as well as lowering costs for taxpayers who end up paying for the diseases and health problems of those who use tobacco. The opposition argued that measure 89 would not do enough to aleviate these problems and consider the measure nothing but a special interest project in order to help find the legislature's "pet projects."
Some of those opposed were:
- American Heart Association
- American Lung Association of Oregon
- American Cancer Society
- Oregon Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals
