Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

This bill would create the Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority (Authority) as a public corporation of the State. The Authority would acquire and condition North Slope natural gas, and construct a pipeline to transport the gas. The Authority’s powers would include buying property or taking it by eminent domain, and to issue state tax-exempt revenue bonds. The gasline route would be from Prudhoe Bay to tidewater on Prince William Sound and the spur line from Glennallen to the Southcentral gas distribution grid. The Authority would operate

and maintain the gas pipeline, ship the gas, and market the gas.

Should this initiative become law?


Scott Heyworth, a longshoreman, was the initiative's chief sponsor.[2]

Heyworth argued in favor of the initiative saying that it could result in a petrochemical business for Alaska, similar to the one in Alberta, Canada, which he said grosses $6 billion a year.[3]
