Text of measure

The language appeared on the ballot as:[1]

Ballot Measure No. 5
Initiative No. 80-01
Claiming State Ownership of Federal Land

This initiative, in effect, claims state ownership of all federal land in Alaska except Mount McKinley National Park, national monuments established before 1977, native corporation selections, the Annette Island Reserve, and land controlled by the Department of Defense or the Alaska Power Administration. If approved, the initiative would provide Alaska with additional grounds to join other states which have similar laws constitutionally challenging federal ownership of land within their boundaries. The proposal would have the State hold this land in trust for the people of Alaska until terms and conditions for its disposal are prescribed by law.[2]
