A proposal to restrict land seizures by government agencies has qualified for the November ballot. But Nevada election officials haven't reached a decision on status of a bitterly contested plan to restrict government spending.
Secretary of State Dean Heller says a review of the Property
Owners Bill of Rights proposal, to prevent governments from eminent
domain abuses, showed it had more than 109-thousand valid
signatures. The minimum needed was just over 83-thousand.
The Tax and Spending Control initiative, to limit government
spending, has more than 125-thousand valid signatures. But Heller
wants to talk with staffers and the attorney general's office
before deciding whether it's qualified for the ballot.
A labor-led coalition has mounted a campaign to block the
petition from qualifying for the ballot, arguing the proposal would
hamstring governments and force cuts in local services.
