CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Senate leaders say they expect to pass Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval’s proposed tax plan.

Republican Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson said the state Senate will vote on SB252 on Tuesday and that he expects the measure to pass with the constitutionally required two-thirds vote.

The bill is Sandoval’s proposed restructuring of the state’s business license fee designed to raise more than $437 million to fund K-12 education programs. Lawmakers held hours of meetings vetting the bill last month and passed it out of committee on a party-line vote.

Senate Democratic Minority Leader Aaron Ford said Monday that he’s cautiously optimistic that the bill will pass out of the Senate.

Tuesday also marks a legislative deadline for most bills to pass out of their house of origin.
