Text of measure

See also: Washington State Constitution, Section 1 of Article XXIV

The language that appeared on the ballot:[1]

STATE BOUNDARIES: MODIFICATION BY COMPACT

Shall Article XXIV, Section 1 of the state constitution be amended to authorize the modification of the boundaries of the state of Washington by appropriate interstate compacts duly approved by the Congress of the United States?[3]

Background

When Washington became a state in 1889, the law defined the center of the Columbia River as the boundary between the state and Oregon. Due to natural and human factors, the river's center changed. This resulted in problems of tax assessments, liability insurance claims and fishing rights.[4]
