Bonding Proposition A
This measure is a legislatively-referred state statute allowing for a general obligation bond to be issued for the purpose of transportation projects in the state. The bond would not exceed $453,499,200.
According to the Alaska Secretary of State's website, Bonding Proposition A was approved with 56.57% voting yes and 43.43% voting no. Election results are not yet official, as a canvassing of the results will not be done until later this month.
