The Alaska State Land Disposal Amendment ballot question was on the November 2, 1976 statewide general election ballot in Alaska as a proposed legislatively-referred constitutional amendment to the Alaska Constitution.

The ballot summary said, "This is a proposal to amend Article VIII, Section 10 of the Constitution of the State of Alaska to add a sentence which would empower the legislature by law to require legislative approval of individual sales, leases or other dispositions of state lands or interests in state lands. The amendment would, with respect to state land disposals, exempt the legislature from the constitutional prohibition against local and special legislation, vest the legislature with the veto power and vest the legislature with the executive power of administration and the judicial power of review."
