The Nevada Mining Tax Cap Amendment, also known as SJR 15, is on the 2014 ballot in the state of Nevada as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would ask voters whether or not the current five percent tax cap on mining should be removed from the Nevada Constitution, thereby allowing legislators to raise taxes on mining activity.[1] A similar measure failed to make the 2012 ballot.


A similar measure failed to make the November 2012 ballot as an initiated constitutional amendment.

According to Article 16, Section 1 of the Nevada Constitution, an amendment proposed by the legislature must be approved by a majority in both the House and Senate in two consecutive legislative sessions. If twice approved by the legislature, the amendment then goes to the ballot where voters decide whether or not to ultimately pass it.
