Bills making initiative process harder to be heard by Nevada Senate committee
CARSON CITY, Nevada: Nevada Senate Bill 133 would require an initiative petition filed in the state to contain signatures of 10% of those who voted in the last election in each of the 42 Assembly districts. Senate Bill 241 would require an initiative petition to have 10% of registered voters in each of the 13 University of Nevada Regents districts. Both bills will now be heard by the State Senate Legislative Operations & Elections Committee on March 22, 2011.
The measures, both sponsored by State Senator Dean Rhoads, would change the current initiative process, which requires signatures from 10% of registered voters who voted in each of the three United States House districts.
