Measure 86 would create college fund for Oregon students

Oregon high school students could have access to a source of money to pay for college if voters pass Measure 86, known as the Oregon Opportunity Initiative.
It's one of seven measures on the Nov. 4 ballot.
However, critics say the plan could leave taxpayers with a large bill and it does not address the underlying problem of college affordability.
The measure is simple. It would require the Oregon Legislature to create a fund dedicated to providing financial aid to Oregon students who are going to college or enrolled in technical training programs. The fund would be invested, and the earnings would be used to provide the financial aid.
