Alaska Legislative Conflicts of Interest, Proposition 2 (1980)
The Alaska Legislative Conflicts of Interest Amendment, also known as Proposition 2, was on the November 4, 1980 ballot in Alaska as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated. The measure would have eliminated the provision prohibiting legislators, during his or her term of office and for one year thereafter, from "taking a state office or position of profit" that received a salary or emoluments increase while the individual was a legislator.
