THIS WEEK'S BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
A legislative Senate committee heard comments on a proposal to repeal Nevada's voter-approved minimum wage law. Senate Joint Resolution 2 would repeal the constitutional amendment that adjusts Nevada's minimum wage level based on the federal minimum wage level or increases in the cost of living.

Do you think the Legislature should repeal Nevada's minimum wage law?
