Text of measure
The language appeared on the ballot as:
13. WAR VETERANS' BONDING AND LOAN AMENDMENT - Purpose: Amends constitutional bonding limits for war veterans’ loans from four percent assessed valuation to three percent true cash value of all property in the state.
ESTIMATE OF INCREASED INDEBTEDNESS: The Constitution of Oregon now authorizes the borrowing on the credit of the State of approximately $150,000,000 for farm and home loans to veterans. This amendment would increase the total authorized to approximately $285,000,000. Interest on the additional $135,000,000 would be approximately $34,000 per annum on each $1,000,000 needed. Loan repayments by veterans are expected to be adequate to pay the interest and retire any state bonds issued under the proposed authorization.)
