Text of measure
The language appeared on the ballot as:
5. VETERANS' LOAN AMENDMENT - Purpose: Amends Oregon Constitution to increase bonding limits for the Oregon War Veterans’ Fund from 3% to 4% of the true cash value of all property in the state. This fund is financed by bonds issued by the state, the proceeds of which are loaned to eligible veterans for farm and home purchases.
“ESTIMATE OF FISCAL EFFECTS: This amendment would increase the bonding limits of the Oregon War Veterans fund from 3% to 4% of the true cash value of all property in the State and thus provide in 1971 an estimated $180 million in additional bonding capacity. These additional funds would enable the eligible veterans to receive loans for farm and home purchases. The loan repayments by the veterans are expected to be adequate to pay the interest and retire any state bonds issued under the proposed amendment."
