THIS WEEKS BUSINESS PRESS POLL QUESTION
Log onto the Las Vegas Business Press website and let us hear your opinion on this weeks question.
A mining tax initiative will not be on the November ballot, but supporters say they will continue to seek enough signatures to get the initiative before voters. The initiative would have changed the state constitution so mining companies would be taxed on gross proceeds rather than net proceeds which allows companies to deduct expenses before calculating their taxes. The proposal also would change the tax rate from not to exceed to not less than 5 percent.
Do you think the public should get a chance to vote on the proposals to increase taxes on the mining industry?
