CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Residents of Laughlin will be allowed to vote on incorporation under a compromise reached with state lawmakers that allows them to pull the plug on the new city if it can't support itself.

The Legislative Commission approved the proposal Thursday. The
action allows residents to vote on incorporation in June, but requires proponents to instruct residents that if passed, becoming a city could mean higher taxes or reduced services.

The commission agreed that a bill draft will be requested for the 2013 session, giving legislators the option to either delay the July 1, 2013 effective date of Laughlin's cityhood, or revoke it altogether if there's insufficient revenue to fund it.
