The Nevada legislature adjourned earlier this month. Among the election law bills that failed to pass was SB 434, which would have made it more difficult to qualify a statewide initiative. Here is the text of the bill. Section 4 of the bill said that before a statewide initiative could begin to circulate, the sponsors had to submit the signatures of 1,000 registered voters who support the initiative. Only after the 1,000 signatures had been submitted and verified could the initiative itself begin to circulate. The names of the 1,000 voters who had signed the “pre-initiative” petition would not be counted as having signed the initiative petition itself. The bill passed the Senate but did not advance in the Assembly. It garnered most of its support from Republican legislators. Thanks to Janine Hansen for this news.
