RENO, Nev. (AP) - An advisory panel is recommending a ballot measure to raise vehicle registration fees and sales taxes to raise money for Washoe County school repairs and technology.
The 15-member committee was created by the Legislature last year
to seek solutions for school upkeep.
Officials say the measures would allow the sale of $393 million in bonds to finance the projects.
The committee said a quarter-cent sales tax hike would generate about $18 million a year. Increased vehicle registration fees would add another $5.5 million.
The Nevada Legislative Counsel Bureau will write the question for the Nov. 4 ballot.
