Text of measure

The question on the ballot appeared as:[2]

Shall the state incur an indebtedness of two hundred fifty million dollars by issuing bonds to pay for the building and rebuilding of facilities for prisons, youth services, and higher education?" Costs of retiring bonds would depend upon the size of bond issues authorized by the state and prevailing interest rates at the time of bond issuance. [3]
