State Teachers Union Rallies For New Tax For Education

The Nevada State Education Association and AFL-CIO on Wednesday submitted close to 150,000 signatures to county clerks and registrars across the state for a new business tax that could raise $800 million a year for education. It won't be easy to move it forward however -  the two unions still have to win an appeal from the Nevada Supreme Court after the petition was struck down earlier this year. They also must convince a few Republicans to join their side before the tax could go into effect. What's the union's plan? We'll ask NSEA President, Lynne Warne about how the tax might move forward.
