Union Initiatives in Judge's Hands

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A lawyer for a Culinary Workers Union-backed initiative says it's up to a Nevada judge to decide whether to keep voters from voting on a measure giving them a say in big-budget redevelopment issues.

A city lawyer urged Clark County District Court Judge David Barker on Thursday to uphold a city council decision and keep two initiatives off the June 2 citywide ballot which he says are legally flawed.

He says the Las Vegas Taxpayers Accountability Committee measures could cripple city redevelopment and let voters throw a wrench into city government at any time.

One measure would repeal the development plan. The other would require voter approval for major projects.

Barker says he plans to rule by Friday afternoon.
