Amendments
State of Washington Constitutional Amendment 45 was a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment to the Washington State Constitution. It was on the November 8, 1966 ballot in the State of Washington, where it was approved.

Amendment 45 added a new Section 8 to Article VIII of the Washington State Constitution.

The text of the new section, which is still part of the state's constitution, is "The use of public funds by port districts in such manner as may be prescribed by the legislature for industrial development or trade promotion and promotional hosting shall be deemed a public use for a public purpose, and shall not be deemed a gift within the provisions of section 7 of this Article."

It was the 45th amendment approved to the Washington State Constitution subsequent to its adoption in 1889.
