(Chuck Muth, Citizen Outreach) – Upon review of the lawsuit filed a week ago against our tax repeal referendum by friends of Gov. Brian “America’s Worst Governor” SandRINOval’s largest tax hike in Nevada history – including a new gross receipts tax like the one 80 percent of voters rejected at the ballot box last November – we’ll be filing a new referendum this week.
We’ll still be targeting, word-for-word, the entire $1.4 billion tax hike enmeshed in SB483 – which means the new referendum will also draw a lawsuit challenging it as a violation of the “single subject rule.”
But the lawsuit’s criticism that our Description of Effect – taken directly from the bill itself – was confusing for the purpose of a referendum was a legitimate point.
So we’re gonna change it.
Also, since the opponents of the referendum indicated in their lawsuit that they might try to drag all 800+ individuals who signed the We Decide Coalition petition into court, I will file the new referendum as an individual on your behalf without listing everyone’s name on a cover letter like in the original.
It’s outrageous that you might be subjected to a lawsuit for simply trying to exercise your right to petition your government, but as Harry Reid warned recently, he and his compadres will do everything they can to stop this tax repeal effort.
In any event, shortly after the new referendum is filed, I’ll be setting up a dedicated website where you’ll be able to begin downloading the petition and gathering signatures even as we battle the “single subject rule” in court.
So stand by…
And while we won’t need the millions of dollars Reid, Sandoval, Sen. Tax Hike Mike Roberson and Big Gaming are expected to spend to stop our efforts, we do need funding for continued research, printing, mailing, court costs, etc.
So now that Labor Day is behind us and the 2016 campaign season has officially begun, please take a minute to go online and kick in $5, $10, $25 or more to join and support Citizen Outreach’s efforts fighting the liberal and RINO (Republican in Name Only) tax-hikers.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“Sen. Harry Reid said he’s willing to do everything he can to help Gov. Brian Sandoval’s $1.1 billion tax package survive a potential challenge at the ballot… ‘I think it would be a real disservice to our state if the crazies were able to prevail.’” – Associated Press
