HENDERSON, Nev. The Henderson Chamber of Commerce’s IMPAC Committee has announced its support of ballot questions 3 and 5.

IMPAC serves as a comprehensive, non-partisan political committee that contributes to the creation of a favorable business climate in Henderson as it relates to issues at the state and local level.  

Question 3 is the Amendment to the Sales and Use Tax Act of 1955. A “yes” vote would authorize the Nevada Legislature to amend or repeal any provision of the Sales and Use Tax Act of 1955 without voter approval in order to resolve a conflict with federal law or interstate agreements for the administration, collection, or enforcement of the sales and use tax – except for legislation that would increase the rate of tax imposed pursuant to the Act or narrow the scope of any exemption under the Act. This does not increase taxes.

Question 5 is advisory only. The question asks that the consent of the governing body of the local government be required before the Nevada State Legislature can act to decrease revenues or reserves collected by, distributed to or held by the local government or impose fees on or mandate new or different service be performed by the local government.

“Our IMPAC Committee supports candidates, bills, questions and initiatives that we believe to be in the best interest of Henderson businesses,” said Rick Smith, who serves as the IMPAC Committee chairperson for the Henderson Chamber. “We believe a ‘yes’ vote on questions 3 and 5 will be good for Southern Nevada.”

The Henderson Chamber of Commerce is known locally, state-wide and nationally for its strong legislative presence. A bi-partisan nonprofit organization, the Henderson Chamber of Commerce has held strong relationships with Nevada’s political leaders on both sides of the aisle for many years.
