CARSON CITY, Nevada: Nevada initiative supporters have about a week before the statewide petition drive deadline arrives. The state requires that constitutional amendments be submitted to county clerks/registrars by June 15. County clerks must then verify and submit the signatures to the secretary of state by no later than August 4, 2010.[1] Despite state citizens filing a total of eleven initiatives in 2010, only four are facing the June deadline for the November 2, 2010 statewide ballot. According to reports, however, only one initiative is anticipated to submit signatures next week - Nevada Mining Tax Measure. The initiative proposes removing the statutory deductions allowed to mining companies by current state law.[2]

Proposed measures are listed below:

Type Title Subject Description
CICA Mining Tax Measure Taxes Removes the statutory deductions for mining companies provided by state law
CICA Secret Ballot Amendment Labor Protects the right to secret ballots in union representation elections
CICA Public Office and Issues Secret Ballot Amendment Elections Protects the right to secret ballots for public office and on public issues

Pending court decision:
