Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
If passed, this initiative would create the Alaska Gambling Board. Local elections would be required before gambling would be allowed in an area. (Gambling run by charities is governed by other laws.) The board would issue one-year, nontransferable licenses to the state, municipalities, or other groups, if they complied with the board's rules. Gambling workers would have to get permits from the board. The board would received a percentage of the money made from gambling as fees. Violations of some parts of the bill would be crimes.
