Alaska Authorization of Special Legislative Committees, Proposition 3 (1980)
The Alaska Authorization of Special Legislative Committees Amendment, also known as Proposition 3, was on the November 4, 1980 ballot in Alaska as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have permitted "the legislature to adopt procedures for establishing interim and special committees by legislative rule, which, unlike a bill, may be adopted without three readings or a roll call vote and is not subject to veto by the governor or repeal by referendum."

Text of measure
The language appeared on the ballot as:
This proposal would amend the state constitution to permit the legislature to adopt procedures for establishing interim and special committees by legislative rule, which, unlike a bill, may be adopted without three readings or a roll call vote and is not subject to veto by the governor or repeal by referendum. This proposal would also allow interim and special committees to meet during legislative sessions and would allow the legislature to vest such a committee with the power to share with the governor the authority to approve or disapprove budget revisions, including authorizations for receiving and spending federal or other non-state funds.
