County Eyes Strip Litter Measure

(Las Vegas, NV) — Clark County commissioners are considering a law requiring people giving out handbills and pamphlets on the Las Vegas Strip to clean up the items from sidewalks and storm drains.

The Review-Journal reports the misdemeanor ordinance set for discussion on Tuesday would have so-called “smut peddlers” clean up every 15 minutes within a 50-foot radius of where they’re standing.

The proposal is the latest effort to clean up the tourist area near the area’s resorts and casinos from a panel set up with a $581,000 budget to spend three months looking at pedestrian congestion on sidewalks in the tourist corridor.

ACLU attorney Allen Lichtenstein says the anti-litter law may not work because it would penalize one person for somebody else’s litter.
