The Alaska Healthcare Amendment, also known as House Joint Resolution 35, did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state of Alaska. The measure was being sponsored by Representative Mike Kelly. If the measure was passed to the ballot, voters would have been able to decide whether or not approve an amendment that would prohibit national mandates on health care policy.[1]

Constitutional changes

If sent to the ballot and enacted by Alaska voters, the measure would have amended Section 15, Article 1 of the Alaska Constitution to read:

Section 15. Prohibited State Action. (a) No bill of attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed. No law impairing the obligation of contracts, and no law making any irrevocable grant of special privileges or immunities shall be passed. No conviction shall work corruption of blood or forfeiture of estate.
(b) No law shall be passed that prohibits a person from or that penalizes a person for making direct payment to a health care provider for tendering health care services, or that prohibits or penalizes the purchase of health care insurance from a privately owned health care insurance company. Except for a health care system that provides indemnity and medical benefits to injured workers, no law shall be passed that compels a person, employer, or health care provider to participate in a health care system or that penalizes a person, employer, or health care provider for declining to participate in a health care system.

The section, at the time, read:

Section 15. No bill of attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed. No law impairing the obligation of contracts, and no law making any irrevocable grant of special privileges or immunities shall be passed. No conviction shall work corruption of blood or forfeiture of estate.
