Bill To End Nevada Newspaper Publication Of Property Tax Rolls Clears Hurdle


A bill that would end the requirement that Nevada counties publish property tax rolls in newspapers passed out of committee yesterday.

Supporters say the bill would save counties more than $800,0000 by requiring publication on the Internet.

Democratic Senator David Parks says money could be better used to pay for libraries and health services.

Similar bills have been before the legislature at least six times.

The Nevada Press Association has opposed it each time.The association says it is in favor of putting the information on the Internet, but opposes the current bill because it doesn't lay out how tax rolls should be published on government websites.
