CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A bill raising sales and property tax rates in Washoe County to fund school maintenance and security projects has passed out of a legislative committee.
AB46 was approved Tuesday by the Assembly Taxation Committee in its original form after an amendment authorizing the school board to impose the tax was withdrawn.
Instead, the bill requires Washoe County commissioners to implement that tax hikes.
The bill now goes to the Assembly floor, where it will need a two-thirds majority, or 28 votes, to advance to the Senate.
