The Kenny C. Guinn Center for Policy Priorities is a nonprofit, bipartisan, think-do tank committed to providing independent, fact-based and reasoned analysis of critical policy issues facing Nevada and the Intermountain West.

During the election cycle this November, the citizens of Nevada are asked to vote on three ballot Initiatives. To help voters better understand the issues as they go to the polls, the Guinn Center prepared fact sheets on Question 2 and Question 3.

The Guinn Center recently presented its fact sheet on The Education Initiative to various professional groups and associations.

“To ensure that our policy briefs are accurate and independent, Guinn Center policy reports and fact sheets are reviewed by an external panel of subject matter experts,” the organization said in a statement.

Read the fact sheets below:

This Fact Sheet on Question 2: An Amendment to the Nevada Constitution provides information on what will happen if the measure passes, discusses how minerals are currently taxed, describes the impact of the mining industry in Nevada, and summarizes the arguments for and against Question 2.

This Fact Sheet on The Education Initiative (Margin Tax) analyzes the potential impact on businesses and estimates the amount of revenue the State will receive. It also summarizes the arguments for and against The Education Initiative.
