SB 731 allows student governments at public colleges and universities to weigh in on state and local initiatives and referenda. 

Student governments in Oregon are responsible for making and implementing decisions that support and maintain the safety of the student populations they serve. Ballot measures can frequently affect the students who attend universities in various ways - either by extending or limiting our access to services, or indirectly by increasing or decreasing resources available to us from the institutions to which we pay tuition to attend. Student governments should be able to take positions regarding such measures.
