Alaska Homesteading of Vacant State Land Initiative (1978)
|Statutes referred by Legislature|
|Laws • History|
The question on the ballot was, "This proposal would make all vacant, unappropriated and unreserved State general grant land (except trust land and 500,000 acres selected by the State for public purposes) available for homesteading until 30% of the land or 30,000,000 acres, whichever comes first, has passed into private ownership. A three-year resident would be eligible for one grant of 40 acres (20 acres in Southeast Alaska); a five-year resident would be eligible for two grants; a ten year resident would be eligible for four grants. However, only one grant could be received per year."
It is counted in Alaska as Initiative 10.
