This measure did not or
will not appear on a ballot
The Nevada Healthcare Exchange Initiative will not appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot in Nevada as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have prohibited the state from creating, operating or maintaining a health insurance exchange or entering into a contract for such.[1]

The measure was filed by Sharron Angle, a former state assemblywoman and candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2010. Sharron Angle also filed the Nevada Voter ID Initiative, which also did not make the 2014 ballot.[2]

Supporters failed to deliver enough signatures by the deadline.[3]

Text of measure

Constitutional changes

The full text of the petition showing the proposed constitutional amendments is available here.

Background

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) has, unlike most in the Republican Governors Association, established a state-based exchange in Nevada.[2]

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.
