Montandon Speaks Out Against Possible Tax

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Republican candidate for governor Mike Montandon says he's launching a pre-emptive strike against a possible new tax on services.

The North Las Vegas Mayor says such a tax would hurt small businesses and "the kind of thing that's at the very root of what gives people the American dream."

Montandon saya his campaign is circulating a petition to muster opposition to the idea.

The tax has not been proposed. Montandon says he thinks it may be included in a Democratic plan to bridge a nearly $3 billion gap in state funding.
The mayor says he would discuss tax increases to solve the state's budget crisis, but first wants a complete review of state spending.

Montandon is challenging Gov. Jim Gibbons for the Republican nomination for the 2010 election.
