I am seeking opinions on why are why not there should be an 8% sales tax increase on hard liquors in Nevada. It will effect all breweries, distilleries, casinos, and bars. All that fail to comply if this was passed they would lose their license. All companies they are in compliance will receive $2,000 incentive. All funding will go to the Nevada Department of Education, but no funding will go to renovations extra-curricular activities or additional administrators. BUT it also goes towards the Millennium Scholarship. Thank you!

As a person from Nevada, my question is, why? there is no reason that my state should raise the tax on liquor.
1st Nevada makes more moeny off its gambling taxes then any other tax in the united states, Nevada also has a mining tax thats also second largest tax in the united states, all funding is put into everything, from roads to schools, to more casinos., if this 8% increase where to put into effect the casinos, could simply stop providing liquor to its customers, and since every major city is on the border of the state, many people could just go get liquor from a different state. If this where to happen nevada would tumble into an poverty stricken crisis, simply because it allready has the top 2 highest taxes in the united states.
