"Make it Monday" forum: A Business Case for Voting No on Ballot Measure 1Noon to 1 p.m. (doors open at 11:30 a.m.), July 19, Dena'ina Center, 2nd Floor -- RSVP Ballot Measure 1 would ban the use of public funds for political campaigns and lobbying by state, local, government agencies, and school districts. Public funds could not be used to support or oppose ballot measures, lobby to pass a law, or ask for public funding. Any entity that lobbies or campaigns would be barred from receiving public funds. It would ban political contributions by government contract holders and members of their families, as well as ban legislators from being employed by government contract holders for two years after leaving state service. The bill has criminal and civil penalties.
Representatives from Stop the Gag Law will discuss why this initiative violates First Amendment rights and will give insights on how local business owners would be affected. RSVP today.
