Nevada Supreme Court Will Hear Gaming Tax Petition

Mon, Apr 14 2008

The Nevada Supreme Court today announced it will conduct a hearing July 1 to determine whether a petition to increase the gaming tax should go on the November election ballot.

Chief Justice Mark Gibbons set the tentative date to hear the Nevada Resort Association’s appeal of a lower court decision that has allowed the Nevada State Education Association to circulate the petitions.

“Nevada voters have a right to cast their ballots on appropriate matters and the Supreme Court will do whatever it can to prevent unnecessary delays,” Gibbons said.
