Alaska House Bill 36 was a 2010 Alaska law that changed campaign finance and other technical requirements of Alaska's initiative and referendum laws. As a result of the bill's passage, the changes to the campaign finance provisions included mandatory registration and reporting for individuals and groups who plan to contribute $500 or more to support or oppose a ballot measure. The law also changed how a person or a group was defined under state campaign finance law.

Additionally, the bill created a single-subject rule on all ballot questions. The law also required the Lieutenant Governor to organize two or more hearings on certified ballot initiatives in each judicial district, presenting testimony from a single proponent and opponent of each measure. A printed voter information guide for special elections was also required under the bill. Additionally, the law mandated that a standing legislative committee hold at least one hearing on all initiatives determined to be properly filed.[1]
