Washington Teacher's Retirement Fund, Referendum 1 (1914)
The Washington Teacher's Retirement Fund Act, also known as Referendum 1, was on the November 3, 1914 ballot in Washington as a veto referendum, where it was defeated, thus overturning the legislation. The measure would have established a retirement fund for public education professionals, such as teachers, supervisors, principles and superintendents, empowered a board of trustees to oversee the fund and defined the sources of the fund.
