PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — There are other measures on the Oregon ballot beyond Measure 97.

Measure 94 failed, meaning voters uphold the 1960 measure which imposes a mandatory requirement age of 75 for Oregon judges.

That requirement was overwhelmingly supported by voters 56 years ago.

Measure 95 has passed, allowing public universities in Oregon to invest in equities. This is an amendment to the Oregon constitution that prohibits the state from owning stocks.

Allowing universities to invest is supposed to reduce financial risk.

Easter Oregon University, Oregon Institute of Technology, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Southern Oregon University, Western Oregon University and the University of Oregon are included in the change.

Measure 96 passed, meaning 1.5% of lottery proceeds will benefit Oregon’s veterans.

This portion of revenue was previously part of the 67% dedicated funds.

Measure 97 failed and the state will not impose a 2.5% tax on corporate gross sales that exceed $25 million.

Measure 98 has passed, requiring the Oregon Legistature to dedicate at least $800 per student every year to high schools. That money is intended to create or expand dropout-prevention and career and college readiness programs in Oregon high schools.
