The people of the State of Alaska determine that:
- (1) the intent of the framers of the Constitution of the United States was to guarantee to each of the states sovereignty
over all matters within its boundaries except for those powers specifically granted to the United States as agent of
- (2) the attempted imposition upon the State of Alaska by the Congress of the United States of a requirement in the
Statehood Act that the State of Alaska and its people "disclaim all right and title to any land or other property not
granted or confirmed to the state or its political subdivisions by or under the authority of this Act, the right or
title to which is held by the United States or is subject to disposition by the United States," as a condition
precedent to acceptance of Alaska into the Union, was an act beyond the power of the Congress of the United States and
is thus void;
- (3) the purported right of ownership and control of the public land in the State of Alaska by the United States is without
foundation and violates the clear intent of the Constitution of the United States; and
- (4) the exercise of that dominion and control of the public land in the State of Alaska by the United States works a
severe, continuous and debilitating hardship upon the people of the State of Alaska.
