Is the mining industry in Nevada paying its fair share?

A popular cry from Nevadans is a call for the mining industry to pay its fair share of taxes.  Recent discoveries in Carson City show mining has not been properly audited in the past two years.  But, is this an issue that will tear northern and southern Nevadans apart?  And are lawmakers looking to squeeze more out of the mining industry to help deal with budget woes?
