Do We Need to Fix the Alaska Constitution?

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. It’s an opportunity that comes every 10 years.  Could this be a way to end legislative gridlock and put an end to corporate campaign funding?   A Constitutional Convention is the subject on the next Talk of Alaska.
