Veterans bonds question on Alaska's November ballot
JUNEAU, Alaska: A question in Alaska that would ask whether to guarantee residential mortgage bonds to veterans is now up for the voters to decide. According to the text of the measure, the revenue bonds would be issued by the Housing Finance Corporation.
The measure is a legislatively-referred state statute and will appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot along with two other measures. One of additional two measures would add four more representatives and two more senators to the Alaska Legislature, which currently stands at 60. The other measure on the general election ballot would create an approximate $380 million bond package that would fund a new sports arena at the University of Alaska-Anchorage, among other facilities.
