Text of measure
Measure 3 was described on the ballot as, "This amendment states that the Alaska permanent fund would be managed by a public corporation established by law. Members of the public appointed by the governor to the board of this corporation would not be subject to legislative approval. These members may only be removed from the board for cause. However, members appointed by the governor to boards of other public corporations that manage significant state assets must be approved by the legislature. Also, a law could be enacted to provide that these other board members may only be removed from office for cause."
