A modest proposal to compromise on two competing business license fee bills

If you disliked Gov. Brian Sandoval’s business license fee scheme that is little more than a margin tax lite, you’ll like Assemblyman Jim Wheeler’s Assembly Bill 323.

The Republican rural assemblyman’s bill, unlike Sandoval’s bill which ties business license fees to gross receipts and cost anywhere from $400 to $4 million a year, would eliminate the current $100 fee altogether.

How about this compromise: Eliminate state business licensing completely. Close that part of the Secretary of State’s office and let the counties and cities handle it, or not, as they see fit.

Sandoval’s plan raises revenue, mine cuts expenses.

    They want to cough up more money for the schools.
    That makes this a non starter.
    No matter that it’s a good idea, iit doesn’t have a chance in hell.
