A Constitutional Convention

The Alaska Constitution is one of the most modern in the country, but it’s almost 60-years old.  In November, Alaskans have to decide whether to re-write it. Should we?  A Constitutional Convention might offer a way to end legislative gridlock and put an end to corporate campaign funding.  But it might also risk the very foundation of our government. It’s your chance to weigh in on whether to have a Constitutional Convention, on the next Talk of Alaska.
