The secretary shall prescribe the size and manner of placement of the statements submitted by a citizen panel to be printed in the voters’ pamphlet, except that the statements shall be clearly differentiated from other arguments or statements in the voters’ pamphlet and may include, but are not limited to, the use of unique formatting and informative symbols.
The secretary shall provide with any citizen panel statement a description of not more than 150 words of the citizen panel process described in ORS 250.137 to 250.149 and the following explanation:
The opinions expressed in this statement are those of the members of a citizen panel and were developed through the citizen review process. They are NOT official opinions or positions endorsed by the State of Oregon or any government agency. A citizen panel is not a judge of the constitutionality or legality of any ballot measure, and any statements about such matters are not binding on a court of law.
The secretary, by rule, shall set a date by which statements must be filed . The date may not be sooner than the 70th day before the date of the election.
