Nevada Assembly Speaker Wants Tax Reform

Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick says she wants to do away with the tax hikes approved by the legislature in 2009. Those taxes were scheduled to sunset but have twice been extended. While she hasn't made any concrete plans, Kirkpatrick has said  a "revenue neutral" approach that could include a services tax on things like haircuts and car repairs might be a better option. We'll talk with Marilyn Kirkpatrick about her plan for taxes in the legislature. We'll also discuss the politics of expanding taxes with Las Vegas Sun Senior Politics Editor Anjeanette Damon.
