Minden, Nev. — An effort to overturn the tax increases approved by the Nevada Legislature last session is gathering steam, Gardnerville Assemblyman Jim Wheeler told Carson Valley business leaders on Wednesday.
Wheeler and Sen. James Settelmeyer, R-Minden, offered an update on the 2015 Legislature at the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce luncheon at the CVIC Hall.
Neither man voted for the legislation, called the largest tax increase in Nevada history by opponents.
He referred people to the web site www.nevada80.com, which is the political action committee out of Carson City, which is working to repeal the margins tax. The 80 refers to the 80 percent of Nevada voters who opposed a larger margins tax in the November election.
