2018 General Election Endorsements

 

Ballot Questions

Q1

No

Marsy's Law: PLAN Action opposes this on the grounds that it could lead to erosion of due process, making worse our system that is already rife with gross inequities in incarceration for people of color and those who can’t afford an attorney. The conviction of innocent people is a measurable quantity. While some provisions are worth considering, the full omnibus measure is flawed and does not belong in the state Constitution.

Q2

Yes

Pink/Tampon Tax: PLAN Action supports this in order to help end gender-based discrimination against women. Sales taxes for menstrual products could cost women and other people who menstruate thousands of dollars over the course of their lifetime, since they are categorized as ``luxury items. This is wrong since they are necessary.

Q3

No

Energy Deregulation: PLAN Action opposes this as it will lead to skyrocketing utility rates for families struggling to get by while letting billionaires like Sheldon Adelson off the hook. Placing energy deregulation in the Constitution, which has never been done in any other state ties the hands of policy makers to craft a better solution.

Q5

Yes

Automatic Voter Registration: PLAN Action supports Question 5 because it creates an automatic voter registration system for eligible Nevadans, which improves the accuracy of our voter rolls, enhances election integrity, and makes it more convenient for Nevadans to have our voice heard on election day.

Q6

Yes

50% Renewable Portfolio Standard: PLAN Action supports this measure to bring more clean energy to Nevada and help fight climate change. While we’d prefer to see 100% RPS, this is a floor to begin and will motivate our state to do better.
