Attorney General's Opinions

  • AGO 115 (1924) Before an amendment to the constitution can be made, independent of the legislature, the method of procedure must be adopted by the legislature, even though Nev. Art. 19, section 3 (cf. Nev. Art. 19, section 5, as amended 1962), declares the provisions of the section self-executing.
