LAS VEGAS (AP) - A judge has rejected an attempt by a conservative think tank to remove a proposed property tax increase from the ballot in Las Vegas this fall.

The Clark County School District is seeking the increase to build and renovate schools and buy new equipment. School officials hope to raise an additional $120 million a year.

The Nevada Policy Research Institute says the Regional Debt Management Commission violated the state open meetings law by not taking public comment just before approving the ballot measure.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports commissioners did ask the only person attending the meeting if she wanted to comment and she declined. District Judge Valorie Vega said Monday that caused no harm.

The tax hike would cost about $74 annually for each $100,000 of assessed home value.
