Certified Ballot Title
November 5, 1996 General Election
RESULT OF "YES" VOTE: "Yes" vote repeals
certain residency requirements now in constitution for veterans'
home and farm loans.
RESULT OF "NO" VOTE: "No" vote retains
all residency requirements now in constitution for veterans' home
and farm loans.
SUMMARY: This measure amends the Oregon Constitution. The
constitution now provides that state veterans' home and farm loans
may be made only to persons who were Oregon residents when they
entered military service or who have resided in Oregon five years
since discharge or separation from active duty. This measure repeals
those eligibility requirements. The measure would not change other
eligibility requirements, or the current residency requirement
that such loans may be made only to persons who are Oregon residents
when they apply for the loan.
