The Washington Corporate Alien Land Ownership Amendment, also known as House Joint Resolution 16, was on the November 2, 1954 ballot in Washington as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure redefined "alien" to include foreign corporations, thus forbidding their ownership of land in the state. The measure amended Section 33 of Article II of the Washington Constitution.
Section 33 of Article II of the Washington Constitution was repealed in 1960 when SJR 20 was approved and enacted.
