We meant it when we said YES

In 2016, more than 1.2 million voters – nearly two-thirds of the entire electorate – voted in support of Measure 98 funding.

In 2017, every single state lawmaker followed their lead and passed Measure 98 legislation unanimously in Salem with $170 million in initial funding.

In 2018, parents, students, teachers and advocates spoke out at every single field hearing held by the Joint Committee on Student Success, urging them to provide full funding for this vital investment.

And in 2019, lawmakers made it clear they were listening when they passed the Student Success Act, an historic education investment that provides full funding for Measure 98.

But now, special interests are trying to undermine the Student Success Act, and they’re claiming Oregon voters need to weigh in at the ballot box...again.

How many times do they need to hear us say yes?!?!

Add your name to our petition calling for the Student Success Act, and the Measure 98 funding in it, to remain intact!

Sign the Petition

 We delivered Measure 98 by working together, and we can protect it by working together too. Thank you for standing with Oregon students!
