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 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.
