The Oklahoma Taxation of Oleomargarine Referendum, also known as State Question 236, was on the November 8, 1938 ballot in Oklahoma as a veto referendum, where it was defeated. The measure would have repealed Senate Bill 217, which allocated 95 percent of the revenue from taxes on oleomargarine to support common schools and the remaining five percent was paid to the state treasurer.[1]
