This November, Washoe County voters are being asked whether or not to approve a sales tax increase to pay for school capital improvements. School officials say the money will help alleviate overcrowded classrooms.

For quite some time now, many area business leaders have been hammering the message that school overcrowding could hurt the region’s economic growth. About four hundred gathered this past spring to rally support for the measure. Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray has this report. 

A political action committee (PAC) has raised about a million dollars to support a ballot measure that would raise the sales tax in Washoe County by half-a-percent. Money from the tax hike will fund school capital projects. As Reno Public Radio’s Anh Gray reports a pending lawsuit threatens to strike the measure off the ballot.
