Ballot Measure 47 (2006) is an initiated state statute that places strict caps on how much individuals can spend on candidates ($500 for statewide office, $100 for other public offices) and bans contributions from corporations and unions entirely.[1] This measure goes hand-in-hand with 2006's Measure 46 that sought to amend the free speech areas of the Oregon Constitution that allow unlimited contributions from any individual or organization.
