Ballot Measure 110 Savings

Ballot Measure 110 was approved by Oregon voters in the November 2020 election. BM 110 reduced the penalties for most Possession of a Controlled Substance (PCS) offenses from a felony or misdemeanor to a new Class E violation, punishable with a $100 maximum fine. This change went into effect on February 1, 2021. The Oregon Legislature enacted Senate Bill 755 (2021) to codify and amend BM 110. SB 755 directed the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) to calculate the savings to the State of Oregon from the sentence reductions in BM 110 and further directed the Department of Revenue to transfer those savings to the Drug Treatment and Recovery Services Fund. The document below outlines the methodology for calculating the savings and presents the figures for the 2019-21 biennium. For questions regarding the Office's calculation and related issues, contact Michael Kennedy at or 971-678-5595.
