What are SB 833, Referendum #301 and Ballot Measure 88?
Oregon Senate Bill 833 is legislation that will instruct the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue driver cards to those who can't prove their legal presence in the U.S. The bill was passed in the Oregon legislature and signed into law on May 1, 2013.
Protect Oregon Driver Licenses filed a citizen's veto referendum #301 to collect 58,142 valid signatures of Oregon registered voters in an effort to place SB 833 on the 2014 ballot so that voters can decide for themselves if they want this law to be implemented in Oregon.
Protect Oregon Driver Licenses (PODL) collected over 77,000 and announced that after the careful scrutiny by the Secretary of State's office our referendum petition signatures were accepted and Senate Bill 833, referendum #301 will now be placed on the November 2014 general election ballot as Ballot Measure 88 so that voters can decide if this new law is right for Oregon.
Protect Oregon Driver Licenses urges Oregonians to Vote NO on Ballot Measure 88. If we are successful, the new law will be dropped. However, if voters vote yes to approve Ballot Measure 88, the law will go into effect 30 days after the election. We encourage voters to VOTE NO on Ballot Measure 88.
