This article presents information on two constitutional amendments to be voted on by Nevada voters that could have an effect on state bond issuance. One amendment would limit property taxes and the other would require voter approval for state spending in excess of revenue. School districts will really be affected by this because they only have real estate taxes to back their bonds. The tax caps are driven by concern that rapidly rising real estate values will jack up tax bills.
