The language that appeared on the ballot:

Shall the Nevada Constitution be amended to remove the limit on the authorized reimbursement of legislators for postage, stationery and other expenses and to remove the additional allowance provided for leaders of the Legislature?[1]

The language that appeared in the voter's guide:

EXPLANATION
The Nevada Constitution allows legislators to be reimbursed for postage, stationery and other expenses incurred during a general or special session of the Legislature in an amount not to exceed $60. In addition, leaders of the Legislature are entitled to receive an additional allowance of $2 for each day they attend the Legislature as presiding officers. The proposed amendment would provide for the payment of such expenses without a constitutional limitation and would n:move the additional allowance provided to the leaders of the Legislature. A "Yes" vote is a vote to remove the constitutional limit on the authorized reimbursement of legislators and the additional allowance provided for the leaders of the Legislature. A "No" vote is a vote to disapprove the constitutional amendment.
FISCAL NOTE
Financial Impact-Cannot be Determined. The proposal to amend the Nevada Constitution would remove the limit on reimbursement for various legislative expenses. The fiscal effect would be determined by what action the Legislature may take with regard to establishing new reimbursement schedules.[1]
