Ballot Measure 1 threatens improvements to roads, runways and other public infrastructure
Vote No to Protect Our Communities Our Jobs and Our Economy
“Ballot Measure 1 is wrong for Alaska and is bad for jobs.”
- AFL-CIO of Alaska president Vince Beltrami
What is ballot measure 1?
Ballot Measure 1 would replace our current science-based fish habitat protections with new, unproven regulations that would impact virtually any type of project in Alaska. The measure poses a threat to Alaska’s communities, our jobs and our economy by adding complicated red tape that will impact private property owners and companies alike. Funded by Outside money, the ballot measure was written in private without public review or comment. There were no public hearings to discuss the potential impacts or provide alternative perspectives. The measure is opposed by a broad coalition of Alaskan businesses, trade organizations, groups and Alaska Native corporations. It will go before Alaska voters on November 6th.
