(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The Clark County School District has won a round over a ballot question that calls for higher property taxes.  District Judge Valorie Vega has allowed the school district to keep the measure on the November ballot.

Voters will be asked to approve up to $120 million a year for six years to renovate old schools and buy new equipment.

The Nevada Policy Research Institute tried to get the measure off the ballot, claiming a panel that approved the ballot question violated the state’s open meeting law.

The NPRI says it will appeal to the state Supreme Court.
