There was an article in the Reno Gazzet-Juornal last week. www.rgj.com

Yes, I think others posted an actual link to the article when it came out. The piece on RGJ's home page today is a new one in reference to the ruling that was made today.

May 8th has come and gone and that was the day the Nevada Senate Government Affairs Committee was supposed to take up the issue of the Federal land and county taxes bill.

I wonder where that stands.

According to the agenda for the committee Today (Friday May 17) at 1:30pm the committee will meet and has AB374 (the bill that prevents counties from imposing taxes on federally permitted events) on it's agenda.

So if you live in Nevada, now is the time to call your state Senator and let them know what you think...

Latest version of the bill:

It passed the Committee as amended. Now it goes to the floor.

Any indications on whether the Gov. will sign it?

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

They're fairly different things, which is why the lawsuit is still ongoing (I think was scheduled to go before a judge in September, though that may be getting pushed back into 2014). The bill ensures that local permitting requirements won't interfere with events held on federal land. Regardless of the outcome of the lawsuit against Pershing County, AB374 streamlines the entire process.
