Measure 92 was one of two ballot measures that appeared on the 2000 Oregon ballot courtesy of chief petitioner Bill Sizemore. Sizemore placed a similar measure on the Oregon ballot in 1998, which failed. He similarly qualified Measure 64 for the 2008 ballot. Measure 64 also failed.

Ballot description

The explanatory language provided to voters by the state of Oregon in their official ballot pamphlet said:

Ballot Measure 92 would add a new section to the Oregon Constitution prohibiting public and private employee payroll deductions if any portion of the money will be used for a political purpose, unless the employee freely gives written permission each year on a form used only for that purpose. The measure would also restrict the use of payroll-deducted funds by any organization that receives them without first obtaining the required employee authorization. Organizations that use payroll deductions include unions, charities, insurance companies and financial institutions.
