Nevada Legislature


Eminent Domain
Nevada A.J.R. 3 received final approval from the Nevada Legislature for inclusion on the 2010 ballot during the 2009 legislative session.  It proposes an amendment to the Nevada Constitution to prohibit, except in certain circumstances, the taking of private property if the purpose of the taking is to transfer an interest in that property to another private party.

The ballot initiative was defeated in the 2010 General Election. The amendments were not made to the Constitution.
