CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Democratic Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick says the goal behind her admissions tax proposal is to make existing law fair.

The North Las Vegas Democrat presented AB498 Tuesday to a joint meeting of the Senate Revenue and Assembly Taxation committees.

Kirkpatrick took on critics who complained it would punish fans of NASCAR races and huge outdoor concerts like the Electric Daisy Carnival.

She says the bill is intended to replace the exemption-riddled live entertainment tax that generates about $135 million a year and close loopholes that have been carved out over the years.

The bill drew support from retailers and a taxpayers group but was opposed by others.

No action was taken on the bill and the chances of passage are questionable.
