Gov. Dunleavy to announce a trio of amendments

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Governor Michael J. Dunleavy will release a plan to submit three proposed constitutional amendments Wednesday.

    In a prepared statement, Gov. Dunleavy said the amendments would change the constitution to reflect a solid fiscal future for the state.

    “These amendments will add three sections to our constitution that will protect you the people," Gov. Dunleavy said. “By ensuring that the dividend is not changed without a vote of the people, that taxes will not be created or increased without a vote of the people, and the final amendment would create a spending and savings rule that will keep government from growing out of control. These amendments are the basis for a permanent fiscal plan.”

    Dunleavy will submit the amendments Wednesday morning to the Legislature for debate and action this session.
