Text of measure
The full text of the petition showing the proposed constitutional amendments is available here.
A state-based health exchange is “an online marketplace where individuals can shop for health insurance plans,” as devised by the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “Obamacare.” Gov. Brian Sandoval (R), unlike most in the Republican Governors Association, established a state-based exchange in Nevada.
Path to the ballot
Initiative supporters needed to collect at least 101,666 valid signatures from registered voters by July 17, 2014, in order to place an initiated constitutional amendment on the ballot. This is equivalent to 10% of the total votes cast in 2012 general election. Furthermore, supporters needed to gather 25,417 valid signatures from each of the state's four congressional districts.
