SitNews - Stories in the News - Ketchikan, Alaska

Proposition 2 arises as a result of legislator and local government cruise ship intimidation and a failure of the legislature to adopt some uniform legislation setting cruise line head tax and revenue tax amounts overall and establishing appropriate regulatory control over unfair cruise ship trade practices.

If passed the legislature will most certainly amend the initiative terms. But passage will ensure that the legislature directly faces the issues and does so from the standpoint of a neglected Alaska public which should express its discontent with inaction by a substantial yes vote majority.
