On June 8, Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed legislation that would have raised Nevada’s minimum wage as high as $12 an hour.  

While this takes the minimum wage issue off the table for now, Nevadans haven’t seen the last of it. That’s because the Legislature also passed a bill to increase the minimum wage through a constitutional ballot initiative. While the language of the initiative may seem straightforward, voters would be wise to read the fine print.
