A review of Oregon's Measure 7 ballot initiative, its history, and future impacts. The measure, which was on the state ballot in 2000, was the most sweeping property rights measure ever seen in this country's history. Although the measure passed, it was later ruled unconstitutional, and was being reformulated for inclusion in the upcoming November election.
