LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court is taking another look
at its decision on a tax initiative about a Las Vegas Strip sports
arena proposal.

In an order signed Tuesday, the seven justices called for more
information from proponents and opponents by next week.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported (http://bit.ly/Lt6rkO ) on
the fight over the measure that seeks to fund the arena with a
nearly 1 percent sales tax increase in a three-mile zone
surrounding the Strip.

Secretary of State Ross Miller asked the court on Monday for
help. He says a ruling last week gave conflicting instructions.

The court ruled June 19 the Arena Initiative Committee measure
backed by casino giant Caesars Entertainment Inc. needs a rewrite
before it can be placed on the statewide ballot in November.
