Oregon State to Pay Property Owners for Reduced Property Values, Measure 7 (2000)
The Oregon State to Pay Property Owners for Reduced Property Values Amendment, also known as Measure 84, was on the November 7, 2000 ballot in Oregon as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have required state and local governments to pay property owners for the decreased market value of their properties due to any regulation or restriction affecting such.
The measure was approved by 53% to 47%.
Lawsuit overturns measure
Measure 7, after the voters approved it, was challenged by the League of Oregon Cities, a lobbying association of city governments that is financed by dues from cities. The League's lawsuit succeeded, and the Oregon Supreme Court nullified Measure 7 in 2002.
A second chance
In 2004, Oregon voters approved Measure 37 which had a number of similarities to Measure 7. The differences between the two were that:
- Measure 37 did not amend the Constitution.
- Measure 37 gave government the option to waive regulations, rather than reimburse a property owner.
- Measure 37 was retroactive.
