Las Vegas Prostitution Not in the Cards

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - State lawmakers aren't going consider
expanding legalized prostitution in Nevada's biggest cities during
the current legislative session.

Assemblyman Bernie Anderson says officials have decided not to
take up the question whether legalized prostitution could be
expanded to Las Vegas during current hard economic times.

The Democrat from Sparks says lawmakers already have a full
plate.

Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley says she doesn't support
legalizing prostitution.

Nevada Brothel Owners Association chief George Flint says he's
disappointed.

He calls brothels the only major industry in the state that
doesn't pay taxes.

State Sen. Bob Coffin had said he'd be willing to hear proposals to
regulate and tax prostitution in Las Vegas and other urban areas in
the state.

State law currently allows legalized prostitution only in rural
counties. It is banned in Clark and Washoe counties.
