Washington Water Pollution Control Bonds, Referendum 17 (1968)
The Washington Water Pollution Control Bonds Bill, also known as Referendum 17, was on the November 5, 1968 ballot in Washington as an legislatively-referred state statute, where it was approved. The measure authorized $25 million in bonds for the construction and improvement of water pollution control facilities.
By 1970 not all of the authorized bonds were sold, despite the January 1, 1971 deadline. As a result, the legislature put Referendum 23 on the ballot to remove the deadline from the statute. That measure was approved.
