Nevada Judge Salary Increase, Question 3 (1994)
|Question 3 (Judge Salary Increase)|
Official results via: Nevada Legislative Counsel Bureau - Research Division
Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
- Shall the Nevada Constitution be amended to allow an increase in the salaries of Justices of the Supreme Court and District Court Judges during their terms of office?
The language that appeared in the voter's guide:
- The Legislature has the authority to revise periodically the salaries of elected State and county officers, including Justices of the Supreme Court and District Court Judges. However, the Nevada Constitution prohibits any increase or decrease in the salaries of Justices and District Judges during their terms of office. As a result, if the Legislature increases the salary of the Justices or District Judges, only those Justices or Judges who are elected or reelected after the increase may receive the higher salary. The Justices and Judges who are serving at the time of the increase continue to receive the lower salary until their re-election. The amendment would permit all Justices of the Supreme Court and District Court Judges to receive any increase in salary when it is approved by the Legislature. A "Yes" vote is a vote to allow increases in the salaries of Supreme Court Justices and District Court Judges during their terms of office. A "No" vote is a vote to disapprove the proposed constitutional amendment.
- FISCAL NOTE
- Financial Impact-No. This proposal to amend the Nevada Constitution would permit an increase in the salaries of Supreme Court Justices and District Court Judges during their terms of office, but such an increase would require legislative action.
