Frank Murkowski wrote an opinion column in the Anchorage Daily News titled “Alaska’s Constitution – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.
Here is one of the paragraphs in the article:
“I oppose a constitutional convention because it is not needed. Alaska’s constitutional convention delegates drafted one of the strongest state constitutions in the nation. (As a former governor, I particularly applaud the fact that it provides for a strong executive.) If a need arises to change our constitution, Article 13, Section 1 provides a demonstrably workable mechanism for doing so, including ratification by a public vote. This amendment process has been used 40 times (28 times successfully), and was how the Permanent Fund was created.”
