Ballot Measure 1

Ballot Measure 2

The measure would establish a new coastal management program in the state. Specifically, the management program that would be established would be formally called the Alaska Coastal Zone Management Program. Alaska is the only coastal state in the country without a federal coastal management plan, according to reports. Coastal programs are established to guarantee state and local participation in federal decisions on coastal issues that could potentially surface.
