In Nevada the one word that legislators and the governors have avoided thus far is taxes. Gov. Brian Sandoval pledged to not sign off on any tax increases as long as he is in office. And that's despite rallies and protests from students and other groups who say the governor should relax his no new tax stance. But, one legislator says taxes are what the state needs so let's try and make it happen. Democratic Assemblywoman, Peggy Pierce has introduced a slew of bills that would tax businesses, cigarettes, mining and alcohol. Some Republicans say her bills are dead on arrival. We talk to Peggy Pierce about her bill and why she is the only legislator taking the steps to make taxes happen in Nevada.
