Case Synopsis

The Nevada Constitution gives the people the authority to place an initiative on the ballot to make law directly by proposing legislation and constitutional amendments. Initiative petitions that comply with Nevada's single-subject requirement, provide a legally sufficient description of its effect, and include a revenue source if it requires state expenditure of funds meets the requirements need to place the initiative on the ballot. Accordingly, the Nevada Supreme Court reversed the lower court’s decision to block the initiative from being placed in the 2024 ballot.
