Ed's Positions on 2000 Initiatives
|Measure||Position||Statement / Ballot Title|
This measure expands the liability of the Oregon taxpayer. I am opposed to
any measure that would increase state expenditures and, thus, taxes.
Further, service past 1976 was voluntary and the benefits and compensation
was known to servicemen when they enrolled.
AMENDS CONSTITUTION: AUTHORIZES NEW STANDARDS, PRIORITIES FOR VETERANS’ LOANS; EXPANDS QUALIFIED RECIPIENTS
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote authorizes new standards and priorities, and expands qualified recipients for veterans’ loans.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains current standards, priorities, and qualifications for veterans’ loans.
SUMMARY: Amends Constitution. Constitution now authorizes fund from which state makes home, farm loans to veterans who served certain active duty. Measure authorizes Director of Veterans’ Affairs to establish standards and priorities for granting loans from fund. Measure eliminates requirement that part of active duty be served between September 15, 1940, and December 31, 1976. Measure provides that active duty includes service in operations for which certain awards are authorized, and does not include training. Measure eliminates outdated language.
The state as a whole must pay for state-mandated programs. Anything else is
taxation without representation.
AMENDS CONSTITUTION: STATE MUST CONTINUE PAYING LOCAL GOVERNMENTS FOR STATE-MANDATED PROGRAMS.
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote retains requirement that state pay local governments for costs of state-mandated programs.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote repeals requirement that state pay local governments for costs of state-mandated programs.
SUMMARY: This measure retains section 15, Article XI of the Oregon Constitution, which requires state legislature to pay local governments for costs of new state-mandated programs or increased level of services for state-mandated programs. If costs are not paid, local governments need not comply with law or rule requiring program or service. Contains exceptions. Requires 3/5 vote of each hose of state legislature to take certain actions reducing state revenues that are distributed to local governments.
|85||Yes||This measure allows more local control of county
boundaries. This would help prevent large populations in a specific area
of a county from controlling the fate of lower populations in other areas.
AMENDS CONSTITUTION: MODIFIES POPULATION, MINIMUM AREA REQUIREMENTS FOR FORMATION OF NEW COUNTIES
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote modifies population and minimum area requirements for formation of new counties.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains current constitutional requirements for minimum area of counties, population of new counties.
SUMMARY: Amends constitution. Constitution now requires that all counties have minimum area of 400 square miles and that new counties have minimum of 1200 inhabitants. Measure permits new county to be established with, or existing county to be reduced in size to, less than 400 square miles, provided that new county has more than 100,000 inhabitants. If new county is established on land from existing county, existing county must retain population at least as great as that of new county at time new county is established.
|86||Yes||Excess funds should always be refunded to the taxpayers.
AMENDS CONSTITUTION: REQUIRES REFUNDING GENERAL FUND REVENUES EXCEEDING STATE ESTIMATES TO TAXPAYERS
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote establishes constitutional requirement to refund general fund revenues exceeding state estimates to taxpayers.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects constitutional requirement to refund general fund revenues exceeding state estimates to taxpayers.
SUMMARY: Amends Constitution. Current statutes require state to estimate future general fund revenues from corporate income/excise taxpayers and from personal income taxpayers and require refunds to either of those two categories of taxpayers when revenues received from that category of taxpayers exceed estimate by two percent. Measure creates constitutional provision establishing such "kicker" refund determinations and requiring refunds when revenues received exceed estimates by two percent. Allows legislature to determine how revenues shall be returned to taxpayers. First applies to biennium beginning July 1, 2001.
Zoning laws should be abolished, not enhanced, and replaced with private
deed restrictions. The targeting of specific
businesses opens a Pandora's box of problems and regulations. People must be
able to use their property as they see fit as long as they don't violate the
rights of others.
AMENDS CONSTITUTION: ALLOWS REGULATION OF LOCATION OF SEXUALLY ORIENTED BUSINESSES THROUGH ZONING
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote allows zoning of sexually oriented businesses without showing threatened or actual neighborhood harm.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains ban on zoning businesses based on content of speech, expression presented there.
SUMMARY: Amends constitution. Oregon Constitution allows regulation of location of sexually oriented businesses upon showing of threatened or actual neighborhood harm other than exposure to sexual expression, and only as other businesses’ locations regulated for same harm. Federal constitution permits some zoning of sexually oriented businesses. Measure would allow zoning of such businesses without showing threatened or actual harm, to extent permitted by federal constitution. Covers commercial establishments whose principal business is nude dancing, nude entertainment or production, distribution or display of representations of sexual activity.
This measure may conflict with Measure 91 but a yes vote on both would send
the proper message.
INCREASES MAXIMUM DEDUCTIBLE IN OREGON FOR FEDERAL INCOME TAXES PAID
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote increases maximum deductible on Oregon income tax returns for federal income taxes paid.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains current cap on amount deductible in Oregon for federal income taxes paid.
SUMMARY: Under current Oregon law, taxpayers may deduct up to $3,000 on their Oregon income tax returns for federal income taxes paid; spouses filing their Oregon tax returns separately may deduct up to $1,500. Measure would increase those amounts to $5,000 and $2,500, respectively. Applies to tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2002. Requires cost of living adjustment for calendar years beginning on or after January 1, 2003. Provides no replacement funds and reduces revenues available for general government expenditures.
These monies were extorted from the tobacco companies under the threat of
expensive litigation. They should be returned to them. Failing that they
should at least be used according to the settlement.
DEDICATES TOBACCO SETTLEMENT PROCEEDS TO SPECIFIED HEALTH, HOUSING, TRANSPORTATION PROGRAMS
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote creates fund from tobacco settlement proceeds dedicated to specified health, housing, transportation programs.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects creating fund from tobacco settlement dedicated to specified health, housing, transportation programs.
SUMMARY: Measure creates fund using Oregon’s share of tobacco litigation settlement. Requires annual distribution, in specified amounts, of fund’s investment earnings only to specified programs, including elderly and disabled transportation fund; low income, disabled housing programs; tobacco use prevention programs; Oregon Health Sciences University’s medical researcher recruitment; nonprofit organizations providing women’s shelter care; county public and mental health programs. Legislature may appropriate principal to programs only with 2/3 vote and specified negative economic conditions, to federal government only when required by court order or settlement agreement.
|90||Yes||It is improper to create a monopoly with guaranteed profits but the prices charged in a free market should be up to the company providing the good or service. This measure could be argued both ways from a Libertarian perspective. The best solution would be to open electrical power to the free market. Some progress has been made in this but more needs to be done.
AUTHORIZES RATES GIVING UTILITIES RETURN ON INVESTMENTS IN RETIRED PROPERTY
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote authorizes rates giving utilities return on undepreciated investments in certain retired utility property.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects authorizing rates giving utilities return on undepreciated investments in certain retired property.
SUMMARY: Current law prohibits public-utility rates derived from rate base that includes any property not presently used for providing service; Public Utility Commission may authorize rates that return to utilities amounts representing undepreciated investments in utility plants that have been retired for specified reasons. Measure authorizes Commission to allow public and telecommunications utilities to set rates at levels giving utilities return on their undepreciated investments in property retired from service (including Trojan) for specified reasons. Applies to property retired before, on, or after effective date.
This measure would reduce the burden on the taxpayer. Libertarians will
always support this kind of measure.
Amends Constitution: Makes Federal Income Taxes Fully Deductible On Oregon Tax Returns
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote makes federal income taxes fully deductible on Oregon personal, corporate income tax returns.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains current system limiting federal income tax deduction on Oregon income tax returns.
SUMMARY: Amends Constitution. Under current Oregon law, personal income tax payers, including individuals, may deduct money paid in federal income tax; deduction generally limited to $3000. Currently, corporations paying Oregon income tax get no deduction for federal income tax. Measure makes all federal income tax paid by personal and corporate income taxpayers a deduction on the taxpayers' Oregon income tax returns. Applies only to federal income taxes on income subject to Oregon taxation. Measure effective in tax years starting on or after January 1, 2000.
State resources should not be used for political purposes. When one is forced to join a union to obtain or keep a job, one should not
be forced to pay dues at all and especially for political purposes. Union
dues should be expended for the direct benefit of the members, not
Amends Constitution: Prohibits Payroll Deductions For Political Purposes Without Specific Written Authorization
RESULT OF "YES"VOTE: "Yes" vote prohibits payroll deductions for political purposes without specific annual written employee authorization.
RESULT OF "NO"VOTE: "No" vote retains current laws governing authorization of payroll deductions for political purposes.
SUMMARY: Amends Constitution. Under current law, payroll deductions are permitted only if authorized in writing by employee, authorized by collective bargaining agreement or required by law; unions cannot require political contributions. Measure prohibits using payroll deductions for political purposes without specific annual written employee authorization. Applies to all employees. Deductions are "used for political purposes" if any portion is spent directly/indirectly on: contributions to candidates or political committees/parties; lobbying; independent expenditures supporting/opposing candidates, ballot measures or proposed initiatives. Imposes civil penalties for violations.
This measure would put another check on the wild expenditures of the
AMENDS CONSTITUTION: VOTERS MUST APPROVE MOST TAXES, FEES; REQUIRES CERTAIN APPROVAL PERCENTAGE
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote means voters approve taxes, fees by certain approval percentage; may repeal recent increases.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains current rules for approving, increasing taxes, fees; maintains previously approved taxes, fees.
SUMMARY: Amends Constitution. Currently voters approve taxes by majority vote; not all new, increased taxes, fees require voter approval. Measure requires voter approval after November 7, 2000 of most new, increased taxes, fees by same percentage of voters passing this measure. Requires repeal and refund of certain recent tax, fee increases unless voters approve increase. Exempts some charges, bonded indebtedness, public safety levies from new approval requirement. Public vote not required in limited circumstances. Establishes standards for taxpayer challenge, judicial review of tax measures. Other changes.
|94||Yes||Mandatory sentencing is an evil that must be expunged. The
judge and jury in each case should determine sentencing. It is a fraud to
pretend that mandatory sentencing helps the victim. Indeed, the victim is
forgotten in the process. We should transform the justice system to
concentrate on compensation of the victim rather than vengeance.
Repeals Mandatory Minimum Sentences For Certain Felonies, Requires Resentencing
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote repeals mandatory minimum sentences for certain violent and other felonies, requires resentencing.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains mandatory minimum sentences for certain violent and other felonies, maintains existing sentences.
SUMMARY: Laws approved in 1994 as "Measure 11" require minimum sentences for certain violent felonies, conspiracy and attempt to commit certain felonies, committed after April 1, 1995. With limited exceptions, statutes require persons convicted serve full minimum sentence, with no reduction for post-prison supervision, temporary leave. Statutes required persons charged with specified crimes aged 15 to 17 when crime committed be prosecuted as adults. Measure repeals these statutes, requires persons sentenced under them be resentenced under existing sentencing guidelines.
|95||No||This measure, while attractive on it's face, will only work contrary to it's purpose. It would only provide
incentive for teachers to get higher scoring students in their class
rather than those that need more attention. There are much better
solutions based on free market principles that would allow parents and
students to "grade" teachers by voting with their feet.
AMENDS CONSTITUTION: STUDENT LEARNING DETERMINES TEACHER PAY; QUALIFICATIONS, NOT SENIORITY, DETERMINE RETENTION
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote requires student learning, not seniority, determines teacher pay; qualifications, student learning determine retention.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains current laws for paying, retaining teachers by qualifications, including performance, education, seniority.
SUMMARY: Amends Constitution. Currently, seniority and postgraduate study may determine public school teacher pay, job security. Measure requires public school teacher’s pay, job security to be based on increase in students’ appropriate knowledge while under teacher’s instruction. Allows performance-based pay increases, certain across-the-board cost-of-living increases, retention of most qualified teacher of subject when layoffs occur. Prohibits automatic pay increases, job retention based on seniority. Applies to new or extended collective bargaining agreements signed on/after November 7, 2000.
The initiative process is not broken. Government is. If government were
small enough that it didn't so affect people, there would be no need for
many initiatives. This would make it harder to change the initiative process
or bypass it.
Amends Constitution: Prohibits Making Initiative Process Harder, Except Through Initiative; Applies Retroactively
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote prohibits making initiative, referendum process more expensive, difficult except through initiative; applies retroactively.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains legislature's authority to pass laws, make referrals making initiative, referendum process harder.
SUMMARY: Amends constitution. Legislature now has authority to pass laws, refer to voters statutes, constitutional amendments altering initiative, referendum process. Measure prohibits laws or referrals from legislature increasing expense or difficulty of initiative, referendum process, by: increasing required number of signatures; requiring geographical distribution of signatures; constraining people from amending constitution on any subject; or otherwise. Repeals any such laws or constitutional amendments enacted within two years before measure’s effective date. Effect is to prohibit increasing expense, difficulty of initiative or referendum process except through initiative.
This violates the property rights of land-owners, trappers, and fur traders.
The position of the "animal rights" organizations is ridiculous on
it's face as animals do not have rights.
Bans Body-Gripping Animal Traps, Some Poisons; Restricts Fur Commerce
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote bans: body-gripping traps, commerce in fur from such trapping, certain animal poisons.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects ban on: body-gripping traps, related commerce in fur, certain animal poisons.
SUMMARY: Prohibits use of steel-jawed leghold traps and other body-gripping traps to capture mammals. Prohibits sale, purchase, barter, exchange of raw fur from mammal trapped in such traps in Oregon. Allows use of specified types of traps for protection of health and safety, animal control, research, and protection of endangered species if permit obtained from Oregon Fish and Wildlife Department. Prohibits use of sodium fluoroacetate, also known as Compound 1080, or sodium cyanide, to poison or attempt to poison any animal. Penalties for violations.
Clearly, using public resources for political purposes is wrong. We have
many laws against this already. This would close loopholes used by some
organizations for their own purposes.
AMENDS CONSTITUTION: PROHIBITS USING PUBLIC RESOURCES FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES; LIMITS PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote prohibits using public resources to collect or help collect political funds
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects prohibition on using public resources to collect or help collect political funds
SUMMARY: Amends Constitution. Prohibits using "public fund" to collect, assist collecting "political funds." "Public funds" defined to include public buildings, employee time, equipment and supplies; excludes voter pamphlet statement fees. "Political funds" defined to include expenditures for lobbying, supporting or opposing candidate, ballot measure or initiative petition. Prohibition applies even if public entity reimbursed for using public funds. Would prohibit public employee payroll deduction for union or any other entity using deduction for political purposes or commingling political, non-political funds. Requires monetary penalty for violation.
We don't need another government agency making it more difficult to get home
care. This is a bad solution to a problem that is caused mostly by
government in the first place.
Amends Constitution: Creates Commission Ensuring Quality Home Care Services For Elderly, Disabled
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote creates commission ensuring quality home services for elderly, disabled receiving publicly-funded care.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects commission ensuring quality home services for elderly, disabled receiving publicly-funded care.
SUMMARY: Amends constitution. Creates nine-member commission ensuring high-quality home care services for elderly, disabled receiving publicly-funded personal care. Members appointed by Governor for three-year terms, confirmed by Senate. Commission would establish home care worker qualifications, registry; provide routine, emergency, respite referrals of qualified care providers; provide training opportunities. Clients would retain right to hire provider of their choosing. Commission would be home care workers’ employer for collective bargaining purposes. Home care workers would have public employees’ collective bargaining rights, could not strike.
This is another trick to increase school funding and taxes. We should be
looking for better ways to improve education than just throwing more money
Amends Constitution: Legislature Must Fund School Quality Goals Adequately; Report; Establish Grants
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote requires legislature to fund school quality goals adequately, issue report, establish equalization grants.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects requirements that legislature fund school quality goals adequately, issue report, establish grants.
SUMMARY: Amends constitution. Current statutes establish quality goals for education; constitution does not require legislature to fund schools adequately to meet those goals. Measure requires that, in each biennium, legislature fund schools adequately to meet law’s quality goals, publish report either demonstrating funding sufficiency or identifying reasons for insufficiency, its extent, and impact on state’s ability to meet goals. Also requires establishing equalization grant system to eligible districts whose voters approve local option taxes, consistent with any legal obligation to maintain substantial equity in state funding.
This would place another control on the legislature and increase
Amends Constitution: Creates Process For Requiring Legislature To Review Administrative Rules
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote creates process for petitioning legislature to require its review of administrative rules.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote keeps system not requiring legislative approval for administrative rules to remain in effect.
SUMMARY: Amends constitution. Current law does not require legislative review of administrative rules. Measure allows voters to require legislative review of administrative rules at next regular session when petition, signed by at least 10,000 voters, is filed listing affected rules. Rule remains effective until reviewed by legislature, but rule ceases to be in effect unless approved. If governor vetoes bill, rule is disapproved unless legislature overrides veto. If rule is not approved, state agency may adopt new rule on same issue, but legislative review is required.
It is clearly a violation of our constitutional protections to have our
property taken without trial and conviction. The asset forfeiture laws have
made our police forces no better than extortionists and thieves.
Amends Constitution: Requires Conviction Before Forfeiture; Restricts Proceeds Usage; Requires Reporting, Penalty
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote requires conviction before property forfeiture; restricts use of proceeds; requires reporting; declares penalty.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects: requiring conviction before forfeiture; restricting use of proceeds; requiring reporting; declaring penalty.
SUMMARY: Amends constitution. Current law does not require conviction before property forfeiture. Measure prohibits property forfeiture unless owner or interest-holder has been convicted of crime involving property. Forfeited property’s value must be proportional to crime. Contraband, unclaimed property may be forfeited without conviction. Forfeited property’s sale must be conducted in commercially reasonable manner. Prohibits applying sale proceeds to law enforcement. Sets priorities for distribution: foreclosed liens, security interests, contracts; forfeiture costs; state drug treatment. Restricts transferring proceedings to federal government. Requires reporting, penalty. Other provisions.
These monies were extorted from the tobacco companies under the threat of
expensive litigation. They should be returned to them. Failing that they should
at least be used according to the settlement.
Dedicates Tobacco-Settlement Proceeds; Earnings Fund Low-Income Health Care
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote creates tobacco settlement trust fund; earnings dedicated to low-income health care.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote leaves use of tobacco-settlement proceeds unrestricted, rejects creation of health trust fund.
SUMMARY: Currently, use of proceeds from settlement with tobacco products manufacturers is unrestricted. Measure places entire settlement into trust fund. Requires continuous appropriation of all fund earnings, for medical, dental, other remedial care services for low-income persons. Principal may be used for those purposes if court order or settlement agreement requires principal to go to federal government, or upon 2/3 approval by legislature when certain economic conditions indicate presence or likelihood of recession. Prohibits appropriations for other purposes, or under other conditions, absent voters’ approval.
This is yet another trick to restrict gun ownership. We should make
ownership easier rather than harder.
Expands Circumstances Requiring Background Check Before Transfer Of Firearm
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote expands Oregon background check before firearm transfer at gun show or by dealer.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects expanding current Oregon background-check requirement beyond handgun transfers by gun dealers.
SUMMARY: State law currently requires background check before gun dealer sells handgun. Measure requires: background check before gun dealer transfers any firearm; background check, or transfer through gun dealer, before nondealer may transfer firearm at "gun show" (event with over 25 available firearms present). Noncompliance creates criminal liability. Retains background information five years; bars disclosure under Public Records Law. Expands crimes of providing false information, improper transfer, to include transfers of all firearms, not just handguns. Other changes.
This is a terrible idea! Taxes should not be used to support politicians.
This would only make it harder on minor party and independent candidates. It
is yet another fraudulent "reform" that should be rejected
Provides Public Funding To Candidates Who Limit Spending, Private Contributions
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote provides limited public funding to candidates accepting limits on spending and private contributions.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains system of no public funding, unlimited private contributions to state office candidates.
SUMMARY: Provides for limited public funding of qualifying candidates’ campaigns for Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Attorney General, state senator, representative. Candidates qualify by: (1) agreeing to accept only certain permitted contributions and make expenditures only from those sources; (2) receiving specified number of $5 contributions from Oregon residents. Creates fund to finance qualifying candidates’ campaigns. After qualifying, candidates may spend revenues only from fund, remaining permissible private contributions. Mandates adequate funding. Partially repeals political tax credit. Increased disclosure requirements. Penalties for violations. Other changes.
It is time that we stop the government from stealing property by regulation
without any compensation of the owners.
Amends Constitution: Requires Payment To Landowner If Government Regulation Reduces Property Value
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote requires state, local government pay property owner if law, regulation reduces property value.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote rejects requiring government pay compensation if law or regulation reduces property value.
SUMMARY: Amends Constitution. Oregon Constitution prohibits taking private property for public use without just compensation. Oregon Supreme Court has not required compensation when property value merely reduced. Measure requires state, local governments pay landowner amount of reduction in market value if law, regulation reduces property value. Compensation required if owner must act to protect certain natural resource, cultural values or low income housing. Exemption for historically recognized nuisance laws or if owner sells alcohol, pornography, operates casino. Applies if regulation adopted after owner aquires (sic) property.
Pharoah only took 10%. Why shouldn't the state get by with 50% more than
Amends Constitution: Limits State Appropriations To Percentage Of State's Prior Personal Income
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote limits state appropriations to 15 percent of state’s personal income in prior biennium.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote leaves constitution without limit on appropriations for state government expenditures.
SUMMARY: Amends constitution. Constitution requires legislative appropriation before spending state, federal funds in treasury; does not limit appropriations. Statute limits growth rate of appropriations for general governmental purposes. Measure limits biennial state appropriations to 15 percent of state’s personal income in prior biennium. Exempts most appropriations funded by state-issued bonds. Would have required over $3.7 billion cut in current biennium’s appropriations. Increasing limit requires Governor’s emergency declaration, ¾ approval of each legislative house. Distributes revenues over limit (except from dedicated investment funds) to taxpayers.
This measure targets a specific group, which is wrong, and, yet, doesn't go far
enough. Public schools have no business teaching morality. That is the job
of the parents.
PROHIBITS PUBLIC SCHOOL INSTRUCTION ENCOURAGING, PROMOTING, SANCTIONING HOMOSEXUAL, BISEXUAL BEHAVIORS
RESULT OF “YES” VOTE: “Yes” vote prohibits public school instruction encouraging, promoting, or sanctioning homosexual/bisexual behaviors; provides penalties.
RESULT OF “NO” VOTE: “No” vote rejects proposal to prohibit public school instruction encouraging, promoting, sanctioning homosexual/bisexual behaviors.
SUMMARY: Amends statutes. Prohibits public schools from instructing on behaviors relating to homosexuality and bisexuality in a manner that encourages, promotes or sanctions such behaviors. Provides sanctions for noncompliance by any public elementary or secondary school or by any community college, including loss of all or part of state funding.
The ballot titles were cut and pasted from the Secretary of State's web site except for 84 which had to be hand-typed due to format of information on the site.
