|| This amendment to article IV, section 10, of the Alaska Constitution re-names the Commission on Judicial Qualifications and changes the makeup of the body. Membership of the new Commission on Judicial Conduct would include: three justices or judges of state courts (instead of the present requirement of five from specified courts); three (instead of two) lawyers; and three (instead of two) persons who are neither members of the state bar nor judges. Judicial members would be elected by all justices and judges, rather than their respective courts, and lawyer members would be appointed by the governor from state bar association nominees and subject to legislative confirmation, rather than appointed directly by the bar.
