CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Democrats tolled out two bills Wednesday to overhaul the state's tax structure and generate about
$1.2 billion in new revenue.
One measure introduced in the Assembly would extend sales taxes to more services, while an amendment to a bill in the Senate would
create a new business tax based on revenues.
The bills face an uphill climb because they require a two-thirds majority in both the Senate and Assembly. Democrats lack the votes
needed for passage, and Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval has said
he'll veto any bill that contains a tax or fee increase.
