Text of measure

The question as it appeared on the ballot:

Shall the Nevada Constitution be amended to provide for the payment of compensation to members of the Nevada Legislature for each day of service during regular and special sessions and to provide for the payment of reasonable allowances to legislators for postage, newspapers, telecommunications, and stationery?[1]

The language that appeared in the voter's guide:

EXPLANATION
Currently, the Nevada Constitution limits the number of days for which members of the Nevada Legislature are paid to 60 days in a regular session and 20 days in a special session. The Nevada Constitution also limits each legislator’s allowance for postage and stationery to $60 per legislative session. The proposed amendment would change this language to provide that legislators are paid for each day of service during regular and special sessions and to provide "reasonable allowances" to legislators for expenses incurred for postage, express charges, newspapers, telecommunications, and stationery. The proposed amendment does not change the amount of daily compensation for legislators, which is currently set by law at $130.
A "Yes" vote would amend the language in Section 33, Article 4 of the Nevada Constitution referring to the compensation of legislators for days of service and the amount allocated to legislators for postage and stationery.
A "No" vote would allow the language of this provision to remain unchanged.[1]

Path to the ballot

Question 11 was sent to the ballot via Senate Joint Resolution No. 11 of the 72nd Session of the Nevada Legislature.[1]
