Judge Tosses Casino Tax Increase Initiative

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A judge has dismissed a petition initiative seeking to raise gambling taxes paid by Nevada’s largest casinos.

District Judge Todd Russell in Carson City on Wednesday ruled that language in the description of effect proposed by Nevadans for a Fair 9 percent Gambling Revenue Tax was misleading and didn’t adequately explain what the measure would do.

Conservative Las Vegas businessman Monte Miller who is sponsoring the effort says he will refile a new petition with the secretary of state’s office.
