Text of measure

The language that appeared on the ballot:

Shall the Nevada Constitution be amended to abolish executive sessions of the senate and require that all meetings of legislative committees be open to the public, except meetings to consider certain personnel matters?[1][2]

Reports and analyses

The language that appeared in the voter's guide:[1]

Explanation

The Nevada Constitution now requires that the doors of each house of the Legislature be kept open during a session, except when the Senate sits in executive session. The proposed amendment would prohibit such closed meetings of the Senate, and further, would require that all legislative committee meetings be open If the public, except for those concerning certain personnel matters. Under this proposal, closed meetings could be held to consider the character, alleged misconduct, professional competence or physical or mental health of a person.

Fiscal note

Financial Impact-No. The proposal to amend the Nevada Constitution would require that meetings of legislative committees be open to the public. Because this is the current practice, the proposal would have no adverse fiscal impact.[1]
