Text of measure

The question asked on the ballot was, "An act amending a law approved by the voters in 1968 which authorized the sale of $63,059,000 in bonds to finance various building projects for institutions, general administration and certain higher education facilities; deleting a requirement in the original act that these bonds be sold prior to January 1, 1972; removing the 6% maximum interest rate payable on said bonds and substituting therefore a provision that the state finance committee shall fix the maximum interest rate."

The 1968 measure that Referred Bill 22 wanted to change was Washington State Building Projects, Referred Bill 19 (1968).
