A Carson City court has ordered the removal of two teacher-backed tax initiatives off the 2022 ballot, reversing Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske’s decision to keep them on the ballot.
The decision by Carson City District Court Judge James Wilson on Wednesday is likely to have major ramifications for the state’s 2022 election, as it prevents the two Clark County Education Association (CCEA) tax initiatives — aimed at raising the gaming and sales taxes — from reaching the ballot box, despite the fact that they received hundreds of thousands of voter signatures in support. Each petition received nearly 200,000 signatures, significantly beyond the 97,598 required to be placed on the ballot.
The tax proposals have been a source of controversy since the end of the 2021 legislative session, when lawmakers reached a last-minute compromise to divert more mining tax income to education.
