As adopted by the Conference

of Alaskans Feb. 12, 2004

 

A RESOLUTION

Expressing

the sense of the conference that distributions from the Alaska Permanent Fund

for permanent fund dividends be dedicated in the constitution and that

distributions from the Alaska Permanent Fund for other public purposes should

be determined annually by the legislature.

 

BE

IT RESOLVED BY THE CONFERENCE OF ALASKANS:

 

style='font-size:13.0pt'>WHEREAS the Alaska Permanent Fund was established as

an exception to the dedicated fund prohibition so that enough revenue could be

segregated and protected to provide a source of money to benefit present and

future generations of Alaskans;

style='font-size:13.0pt'> WHEREAS dedication of a part of the distributions

from the Alaska Permanent Fund provides a predictable and stable means to finance

the permanent fund dividend for the foreseeable future;

 

           NOW

THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED: The Legislature should pass a resolution

proposing a constitutional amendment and present it to the voters for

ratification at the 2004 general election that would protect the permanent fund

dividend and ensure that the dividend would continue to be paid to state

residents.
