Text of measure

Title

According to the Nevada Secretary of State's office, the ballot question read as follows:[3]

Shall the Sales and Use Tax Act of 1955 be amended to authorize the Legislature to amend or repeal any provision of this Act only if necessary to resolve a conflict with any federal law or interstate agreement for the administration, collection, or enforcement of sales and use taxes?

Opposition

  • The Reno Gazette-Journal was opposed to Question 3. "Do you trust the Legislature to make such changes, or do you feel more comfortable trusting voters. This proposal again takes away our right to vote," said the editorial board.[4]
