CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Gov. Brian Sandoval remains bullish about Nevada's economic future and discounts banter about pending tax initiatives as premature and wrong for the state.

Sandoval says he doesn't believe in setting tax policy through the initiative process.

But at least one such initiative is coming, and backers say it stems from years of frustration with legislators failing to adequately fund education and other vital state services.

The most visible effort is being led by Nevada AFL-CIO leader Danny Thompson, who before the start of the 2011 legislative session warned he would take the tax battle to voters if lawmakers failed to act.

Thompson is following through with that promise. He said backers are fine-tuning language and expect to file it with the secretary of state's office soon.
