Washington Public Building Bonds, Referendum 19 (1968)
The Washington Public Building Bonds Bill, also known as Referendum 19, was on the November 5, 1968 ballot in Washington as an legislatively-referred state statute, where it was approved. The measure authorized $63,059,000 in bonds to finance various building projects for institutions, general administration and certain higher education facilities.
By 1970 not all of the authorized bonds were sold, despite the January 1, 1971 deadline. As a result, the legislature put Referendum 22 on the ballot to remove the deadline from the statute. That measure was defeated.
