Ballot initiatives/Referendums

:graybox: State Question No. 724
   This measure amends Article V, Section 21 of the State Constitution. That Section deals
   with State pay to legislators. The amendment restricts State pay to some legislators.
   The pay restriction would apply to some legislators while in jail or prison. The pay
   restriction would apply to legislators found guilty of a crime. It would also apply
   to legislators who plead either guilty or no contest. Affected legislators must return
   any State pay received for time while in jail or prison.
   Shall the proposal be approved?

:graybox: State Question No. 725
   This measure amends the State Constitution. It amends Section 23 of Article 10.
   The measure deals with the Constitutional Reserve Fund also known as the Rainy Day Fund.
   The measure allows money to be spent from the Rainy Day Fund. The purpose of the authorized
   spending is to retain employment for state residents by helping at-risk manufacturers.
   Payments from the Fund would be used to encourage such manufacturers to make investments
   in Oklahoma. All such payments from the Fund must be unanimously approved by three State
   officers. Those officers are the Governor and the head of the Senate and House of
   Representatives. Those officers could only approve payments recommended by an independent
   committee. Such spending is allowed in years when there is Eighty Million Dollars or more
   in the Fund and other conditions are met. Such spending is limited to Ten Million Dollars
   a year. The help given to a manufacturer is limited to ten percent of its in-State capital
   investments. The Legislature could make laws to carry out the amendment.
   Shall the proposal be approved?

:graybox: State Question No. 733
   This measure amends the Oklahoma Constitution. It amends Article 28. This Article deals
   with sales of alcoholic beverages. Section 6 of Article 28 bans the sale of alcoholic
   beverages by package stores on certain days. Package store sales of these beverages are
   prohibited on election days while the polls are open. This measure would remove the ban
   on sales on election days. If this measure passes, package stores could sell alcoholic
   beverages on election days.
   Shall the proposal be approved?
   Full Text (pdf)

:graybox: State Question No. 734
   This measure amends the Oklahoma Constitution. It amends Section 6A of Article 10.
   This section provides an exemption from property tax. The exemption applies to goods
   that are shipped into the state, but which do not remain in the state for more than
   ninety days. This is sometimes known as the freeport exemption. This measure would allow
   laws to be enacted. The laws could provide for an application process to claim this
   exemption. The laws could require the application to be filed by a certain date. The laws
   could require certain information to be included with the application. The application
   would be filed with the county assessor.
   Shall the proposal be approved?
