Property Tax Petition Faces New Challenge

A group pushing a Nevada property tax cap wants to erase a judge's ruling that said it shouldn't be on the November ballot.

District Judge Charles McGee decided last week there were too many problems with signatures on the initiative's petitions for it to be legal.

But the plan's supporters say McGee didn't disclose the fact that his wife works for the Washoe County School District.

They say that's a problem because McGee was responding to a suit filed by the Nevada State Education Association.

And if his ruling is reversed, the secretary of state's office has to figure out how to get the issue back on the printed ballot, since it was ordered taken off after McGee's ruling.
