Oregon Ballot Measure 47 was on the November 7, 2006 ballot in Oregon as an initiated state statute, where it was approved.

Measure 47 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] Measure 47 went 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.
