Pre-vacation bleg

Attention Blogosphere!

I'm headed out of town with the family for a few days of Spring Break R&R (attention thieves -- I have a really big dog that can chew the limbs off small children . . . or at least their stuffed animals), but I have an assignment for you:

I need as many Oregon examples as you can think of, dating as far back as you want, on situations where the voters clearly spoke about something, and then the legislature or some other governmental body overrode the voters' wishes.

Example: voters turned down bonds for expansion of the Oregon Convention Center, only to see Metro fund the expansion anyway.

Please leave the examples, with details if you know them (or where to find them), in the comments section.

Thanks, and happy Spring!
