Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman used his annual State of the City address to call for overhauling Nevada's tax system.
The mayor, a Democrat, says he wants an open dialogue with Gov. Jim Gibbons over cutting the state budget.
He also wants a bipartisan panel to present ideas to the City Council.
Most of Goodman's speech -- held at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve -- focused on recognizing city projects that meet high environmental standards.
The mayor says he expects criticism on his call for tax reform -- since tax policy is supposed to handled on the state level by the governor and Legislature.
But Goodman says it's important to raise the issue.
