AG to tax department: You can't pierce collective bargaining agreements if you take over NLV finances

That's the gist of an opinion I have obtained that the attorney general signed last week.

It tells the state taxation department it does not have the authority to open collective bargaining agreements, and it also says if the tax department is forced to raise city property taxes in an emergency, the usual abatements do not apply.

Welcome to North Las Vegas, Mayor John Lee.

The opinion is attached here.
