GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

Voters could have the final say on whether to raise taxes to balance the state budget.  Democrats, who control both houses of the Legislature, could put a tax increase measure on the 2012 ballot with a simple majority. 

It would get around the current rule of requiring a two-thirds legislative majority to raise taxes.  If voters approve the measure, it could ease the state’s cash crunch starting in 2013. 

Governor Brian Sandoval, who has opposed tax increases to balance the budget, has not said whether he supports the idea.
