Five measures set to be on Alaska ballot
JUNEAU, Alaska: A total of five ballot measures are slated to appear on the Alaska ballot, two on the primary ballot and three on the general election ballot in November. The measures were certified by way of both initiative and legislature. The measures that voters in Alaska will see follow:
- An initiative that would bar public organization or person who is employed by the state receiving, permitting, requiring or facilitating the use of public resources for any political agenda such as campaigning, lobbying or other similar activities. Violation would result in a Class A misdemeanor if the measure is approved.
- Another initiative that would forbid a minor from getting an abortion without a doctor informing at least one parent before moving forward with the procedure.
- Two legislatively-referred state statutes, one of which would allow residents in the state to decide whether to guarantee residential mortgage bonds to veterans, while another would create an approximate $380 million bond package that would fund education facilities and a new sports arena.
- One legislatively-referred constitutional amendment that would add four more representatives and two more senators to the Alaska Legislature, which currently stands at 60.
