Measure 96

Argument in Opposition

City Club of Portland Recommends a No Vote on Measure 96
Support Veterans, not a Constitutional Amendment Restricting Funding

Why was Measure 96 proposed?

Measure 96 would potentially help address critical gaps for veterans in the areas of education, health, mental health, housing, employment, transportation and welfare. It is intended to fund outreach efforts, enabling veterans and their families to connect to and access the federal benefits they have earned. It would also help generate economic and educational opportunities for veterans, particularly for those who are re-integrating into society after their service.

Why vote NO?
