      Section 1.  Whenever ten per centum or more of the voters of this State, as shown by the number of votes cast at the last preceding general election, shall express their wish that any law or resolution made by the Legislature be submitted to a vote of the people, the officers charged with the duties of announcing and proclaiming elections and of certifying nominations or questions to be voted on, shall submit the question of the approval or disapproval of said law or resolution to be voted on at the next ensuing election wherein a State or Congressional officer is to be voted for, or wherein any question may be voted on, by the electors of the entire State.

      Sec. 2.  When a majority of the electors voting at a State election shall by their votes signify approval of a law or resolution such law or resolution shall stand as the law of the State and shall not be overruled, annulled, set aside, suspended, or in any way made inoperative except by the direct vote of the people. When such majority shall so signify disapproval the law or resolution so disapproved shall be void and of no effect.

      Sec. 3.  The people reserve to themselves the power to propose laws and the power to propose amendments to the constitution and to enact or reject the same at the polls, independent of the legislature, and also reserve the power at their option to approve or reject at the polls, in the manner herein provided, any act, item, section or part of any act or measure passed by the legislature, and section one of article four of the constitution shall hereafter be considered accordingly. The first power reserved by the people is the initiative. The initiative petition shall be proposed by not less than ten per cent (10%) of the qualified electors of each of not less than seventy five per cent (75%) of the counties in the state, provided, however, that the total number of qualified electors proposing the said petition shall be not less than ten per cent (10%) of all of the qualified electors of the State.

who signed his or her name thereto was at the time that he or she signed the petition a bonafide qualified elector of the respective county and the State of Nevada, said affidavit to be executed before a Notary Public or some officer authorized to administer an oath who possesses a seal. Initiative petitions, for all but municipal legislation, shall be filed with the secretary of state not less than thirty (30) days before any regular session of the legislature; the secretary of state shall transmit the same to the legislature as soon as it convenes and organizes. Such initiative measure shall take precedence over all measures of the legislature except appropriation bills, and shall be enacted or rejected by the legislature, without change or amendment, within forty (40) days. If any such initiative measure so proposed by petition as aforesaid, shall be enacted by the legislature and approved by the governor in the same manner as other laws are enacted, same shall become a law, but shall be subject to referendum petition as provided in sections one and two of this article. If said initiative measure be rejected by the legislature, or if no action be taken thereon within said forth (40) days, the secretary of state shall submit the same to the qualified electors for approval or rejection at the next ensuing general election; and if a majority of the qualified electors voting thereon shall approve of such measure it shall become a law and take effect from the date of the official declaration of the vote; an initiative measure so approved by the qualified electors shall not be annulled, set aside or repealed by the legislature within three (3) years from the date said act takes effect. In case the legislature shall reject such initiative measure, said body may, with the approval of the governor, propose a different measure on the same subject, in which event both measures shall be submitted by the secretary of state to the qualified electors for approval or rejection at the next ensuing general election. The enacting clause of all bills proposed by the initiative shall be: “The people of the State of Nevada do enact as follows.” The total number of votes cast at the general election last preceding the filing of any initiative petition shall be the basis on which the number of qualified electors required to sign such petition shall be counted. The second power reserved by the people is the referendum, which shall be exercised in the manner provided in sections one and two of this article. The initiative and referendum powers in this article provided for are further reserved to the qualified electors of each county and municipality as to all local, special and municipal legislation of every character in or for said respective counties or municipalities. The legislature may provide by law for the manner of exercising the initiative and referendum powers as to county and municipal legislation, but shall not require a petition of more than 10 per cent (10%) of the qualified electors to order the referendum, nor more than 15 per cent (15%) to propose any municipal measure by initiative. If the conflicting measures submitted to the people at the next ensuing general election shall both be approved by a majority of the votes severally cast for and against each of said measures, the measure receiving the highest number of affirmative votes shall thereupon become a law as to all conflicting provisions. The provisions of this section shall be self-executing, but legislation may be especially enacted to facilitate its operation.]

      Whereas, A great percentage of the general fund revenue of the state is derived from the taxation of real property; and

      Whereas, The assessment of real property is a function which requires particular skills and considerable experience in order to be able to determine the true value of property in accordance with statutory provisions and accepted standards and procedures and to achieve uniformity and equality in valuation for the purpose of ad valorem taxation; and

      Whereas, The provisions of law in this state do now and always have permitted the election of certain individuals having no qualifications, experience, education or training fitting them for the office of assessor; and

      Whereas, It is imperative for the financial well-being of the state and its political subdivisions as well as for equality and justice to Nevada taxpayers that only persons thoroughly qualified, trained and experienced in the field of real property evaluation shall occupy the important office of assessor; and

      Whereas, Numerous studies made in other states demonstrate, and experts in the assessing field assert, that no such trained and experienced assessing personnel can be obtained with certainty by way of election; and

      Whereas, Other states and taxing areas have provided for appointment of assessors after examination, with qualifications and standards required to be met before being eligible to take such examination; and

      Whereas, Fidel Castro as the premier of the Cuban government has conducted an intensive anti-American campaign; and

      Whereas, The many benefits derived by the people of Cuba as a result of such efforts by the United States of America are being destroyed by the actions of Fidel Castro in his treatment of the people of Cuba and his anti-American campaign; now, therefore, be it
