A Washington Building Projects ballot measure, or Referred Bill 19 was on the November 5, 1968 ballot in the State of Washington as a legislatively-referred state statute, where it was approved.

Referred Bill authorized the sale of $63,059,000 in bonds to finance various building projects for institutions, general administration and certain higher education facilities.

Two years later, the Washington State Legislature put a measure on the ballot to try to change some provisions of Referred Bill 19: Washington State Building Bonds, Referred Bill 22 (1970). That 1970 measure was defeated, leaving Referred Bill 19 intact.
