A petition is circulating to repeal the $873 million tax increase passed by Governor Kenny Guinn. The petition, filed by the taxpayer’s coalition Nevadans for Sound Government, is accompanied by another proposal to keep civil servants from holding seats in the legislature. Guinn was able to ramrod his tax hike through the legislature in spite of a constitutional 2/3 supermajority requirement for raising taxes with the help of the State Supreme Court, which ruled that the legislature could waive the amendment. (AP 7/22/03) The petitioners need to collect just over 51,000 signatures by May 18th in order to get the repeal measure on the ballot during the 2004 elections.
