JUNEAU, Alaska: Partially motivated by the Alaska Clean Water Act (2008), which was defeated by voters, two Alaska State Representatives - Kyle Johansen (R-Ketchikan) and Charisse Millett (R-Anchorage) - introduced HB 36 in 2009 to make it illegal for initiative circulators to be paid on a per-signature basis. It would also make it illegal for initiative circulators to circulate more than one initiative at once.[1][2] Current law stipulates that compensation for initiative circulators is limited to $1 per signature. Alaska is the only I&R state that sets a definite limit on how much a person can earn through collecting signatures.
