A Washington Building Projects ballot measure
, or Referred Bill 19
was on the November 5, 1968 ballot
in the State of Washington
as a legislatively-referred state statute
, where it was approved.
Referred Bill authorized the sale of $63,059,000 in bonds to finance various building projects for institutions, general administration and certain higher education facilities.
Two years later, the Washington State Legislature put a measure on the ballot to try to change some provisions of Referred Bill 19: Washington State Building Bonds, Referred Bill 22 (1970). That 1970 measure was defeated, leaving Referred Bill 19 intact.
