Voters on Tuesday rejected several measures that would have imposed additional taxes on residents and businesses.
Massachusetts voters approved Question 1, which repeals the gas tax indexing to inflation. Fifty-three percent voted in favor of eliminating that indexing.
Nevada voters rejected a two percent margin tax on businesses that would be used for public schools. Eighty percent voted no on the new tax.
The Nevada State Education Association supported Question 3. On Election Day the NSEA tweeted out, “Yes on Question 3, if not now, when?” They linked to a cartoon on their Facebook page that said, “No matter how you slice it, we need more pie.”
Nevada voters rejected their need for “more pie,” as did the Nevada AFL-CIO, which opposed the new tax.
