Three of 7 Pending Nevada Ballot Measures are Moving Forward

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Four proposed Nevada ballot measures have effectively died after missing a deadline to submit supporter signatures.

The petitions that failed to meet Tuesday’s deadline called for constitutional amendments requiring voter ID, abolishing the state health insurance exchange and expanding student data privacy petitions. The measures were backed by Republican former Senate candidate Sharron Angle.

Supporters of a measure that would repeal Nevada’s new commerce tax abandoned their signature drive last month after a court setback.

Three petitions submitted by the deadline aim to reverse a rooftop solar rate hike, undo NV Energy’s monopoly and exempt more medical equipment from the sales tax.

Officials will now verify whether each petition gathered at least 55,000 valid signatures.

Measures to legalize recreational marijuana and expand gun background checks previously qualified for November’s ballot.
