There was a Proposition 3, City of Fairbanks, Creation of Local Financial Disclosure Laws on the October 6, 2009 ballot ballot in Fairbanks City, which is in Alaska.

This proposition sought to adopt a city law that would enable them to opt-out of state wide ethic codes and state wide financial disclosure laws. The city saw the state laws and interfering with other local laws so they proposed this change.[1] This is also seen as a way to get more local citizens to run for office because with the new local laws in place they would not need to disclose how much money they made or any client information if it were applicable. This is seen as a way to get more local citizens involved with their government.[2]

Unofficial results: This measure was passed with 56.89% of votes in favor.[3]
